Not Showing catch block

It keeps saying "Bummer did you add a catch block?" I think i did. whats wrong?

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

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

Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));

    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {-2}",value));

    Console.WriteLine("Value is out of bounds!");

Hi John,

You want to wrap the existing if block in the try block.

That's the code you're trying to do. Then if the exception is caught you can print the error message requested.

The existing write statement that prints the number would then be at the end of the code.
