Hi Prathibha,

If your trigger is invoking from Standard record detail page then you use "sObject.addError(<Message>)" method to show an error.

Refer to following code snippet - 
for(Account accItr : Trigger.new){
	if(accItr.contactCounter__c != null && accItr.contactCounter__c >= 10 ){
		accItr.addError("You can not have more than 10 associated contacts");

This error would be specific to sObject record however if you want to use try catch block then you can throw a custom exception and attach it to the specific sobject record.

Do post here if you have any further questions.

Happy Coding!!
