    Default InterruptedException in multi threading

    Hi !
    My doubt is on InterruptedException in java .
    I am asking my doubt based on sleep method in java.
    When we call interrupt on a thread which is in sleep state then InterruptedException is thrown.
    Below are my doubts:
    1)Imagine that we have called interrupt method on a thread named Thread1,which has come out from a sleep.
    Then will Thread1 throws InterruptedException?
    2)Imagine that we have called interrupt method on a thread named Thread2,which will go to sleep.
    That means now Thread2 is not in sleep state.
    Then will Thread2 throws Interrupted exception?
