Solution for 4-36

it should say: The correct answer is (c). After the first NO_DATA_FOUND is re-raised, control is passed immediately to the outer block's exception section and then the string displayed terminates with "No data in outer block". Following this, PL/SQL does not return to the block to finish up by displaying "Finished test".
