Multiple try codes in one block

I have a problem with my code in the try block.
To make it easy this is my code:

try:
code a
code b #if b fails, it should ignore, and go to c.
code c #if c fails, go to d
code d
except:
pass


Is something like this possible?

You'll have to make this separate try blocks:

try:
    code a
except ExplicitException:
    pass

try:
    code b
except ExplicitException:
    try:
        code c
    except ExplicitException:
        try:
            code d
        except ExplicitException:
            pass

This assumes you want to run code c only if code b failed.

If you need to run code c regardless, you need to put the try blocks one after the other:

try:
    code a
except ExplicitException:
    pass

try:
    code b
except ExplicitException:
    pass

try:
    code c
except ExplicitException:
    pass

try:
    code d
except ExplicitException:
    pass

I'm using except ExplicitException here because it is never a good practice to blindly ignore all exceptions. You'll be ignoring MemoryError, KeyboardInterrupt and SystemExit as well otherwise, which you normally do not want to ignore or intercept without some kind of re-raise or conscious reason for handling those.
