using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace throw_statement
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            int num1, num2, result;

            Console.WriteLine("Enter First Number");
            num1 = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());

            Console.WriteLine("Enter Second Number");
            num2 = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());

                if (num2 == 0)
                    throw new Exception("Can't Divide by Zero Exception\n\n");
                result = num1 / num2;
                Console.WriteLine("{0} / {1} = {2}", num1, num2, result);
            catch (Exception e)
                Console.WriteLine("e;Error : "e; + e.ToString());


When you will execute this code, and input 0 for second input then you will get the Can’t Divide by Zero Exception that is raised by throw statements.
