6. In the following program, if somecondition() is true, then only line number 3 must throw a custom exception MyException. MyException is not a subclass of runtime exceptions. What are the changes to be made to the given method.
    1. Public void method() {
    2. If (somecondition()) {
    3. }
    4. }

    5.  

       
       
       

  1. Add throws new MyException(); in line number 3
  2. Add throws new MyException(); in line number 5

}

}

  1. The program prints The value of i is 0;
  2. The program gives a compilation error. By changing the private int i to public int i the problem gets resolved
  3. The program gives a compilation error. By changing the private int i to private static int i the problem gets resolved
  4. The program gives a compilation error. By changing the public static of the method to public only and then calling this method from the main using an instance of Example, the problem gets resolved.
