Threw or Through

Threw or Through :

“Threw” is the past tense of the verb “throw”: “The pitcher threw a curve ball.”

“Through” is never a verb: “The ball came through my living room window.”

Unless your sentence involves someone throwing something—even figuratively, as in “she threw out the idea casually”— the word you want is “through.”
