Catch(System.Exception ex) not throwing the exceptions i expect
Why doesn't " Catch(System.Exception ex) " catch all errors of type Exception?

Since most of the examples of this quiz have cascading
catch clauses, I'm guessing that you're looking at one where a more specific
catch handles the exception instead of the basic
Remember that once any
catch clause condition is met, that clause handles the exception so no other
catch clauses that follow it will be triggered.
If that's not your issue, please provide more information.
