C# C# Objects Inheritance Catching Exceptions

I have added a block for catch and its still throwing errors no matter how i arrange this and it looks identical

to what the instructor has written out in the lesson. Team treehouse needs to improve the code testing portion of the website. I get stuck on preferences and its really frustrating to learn that way.

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

try
{
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));
}
catch(System.Exception)
{
    Console.WriteLine(" Value is out of bounds!");
}


if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

The test (and throw) code must be inside the "try" block for the exception to be caught.

Also, you only need one copy of the test/throw code but there's two right now.
