  •  FooBar
  •  Foo Bar
  •  Bar

Q4. Given these two tables, which query generates a listing showing student names and the department office location where you could reach each student?

  •  SELECT Students.first_name, Students.last_name, Departments.office_location FROM Students, Departments;

Q6. Given the Games table pictured, which query generates the results shown?

  • [ ]
  SELECT GameType, MaxPlayers, count(*) AS NumberOfGames
  FROM Games
  GROUP BY MaxPlayers, GameType
  ORDER BY MaxPlayers, GameType;
  • [x]
  SELECT GameType, MaxPlayers, count(*) AS NumberOfGames
  FROM Games
  GROUP BY GameType, MaxPlayers
  ORDER BY GameType;
  • [ ]
  SELECT GameType, count(Players) AS MaxPlayers, NumberOfGames
  FROM Games
  GROUP BY GameType, MaxPlayers
  ORDER BY GameType;
  • [ ]
  SELECT GameType, MaxPlayers, count(*) AS NumberOfGames
  FROM Games
  GROUP BY GameType
  ORDER BY MaxPlayers;

Q7. Which answer is a possible result of the sequence of commands below?

  DECLARE @UniqueID uniqueidentifier = NEWID();
  SELECT @UniqueID AS Result;
  •  1
  •  bb261196-66a5-43af-815d-123fc593cf3a
  •  z350mpj1-62lx-40ww-9ho0-4u1875rt2mx4
  •  0x2400001155F04846674AD4590F832C0

Q8. You need to find all students that are not on the "Chemistry Cats" team. Which query does NOT work for this task?

  • [x]
   WHERE team NOT 'Chemistry Cats';
  • [ ]
   WHERE team <> 'Chemistry Cats';
  • [ ]
   WHERE team != 'Chemistry Cats';
  • [ ]
   WHERE NOT team = 'Chemistry Cats';

Q9. You need to write a query that returns all Employees that have a LastName starting with the letter A. Which WHERE clause should you use to fill in the blank in this query?

  •  WHERE LastName = A*

  •  SELECT TOP(2) WITH TIES first_name, department, team FROM Students ORDER BY points;
  •  SELECT BOTTOM(2) first_name, department, team FROM Students ORDER BY points ASC;

the picture of table is important here and there it can be seen that there are only two value with min points. Secondly, the previous answer was wrong because order by DESC will put highest points into the beginning of result list and TOP(2) will take first two highest points, and we need the lowest points.

Q11. What is the result of this statement?

  •  0
  •  9

Q22. You need to write a query that returns all products that have a SerialNumber ending with "10_3". Which WHERE clause should you use to fill in the blank in this query?

  •  WHERE SerialNumber LIKE ('%10'+'_'+'3')
  •  WHERE SerialNumber LIKE '%10"_"3'
  •  WHERE SerialNumber LIKE '%10[_]3'

The underscore will match any single character so you must bracket it to match a literal _, otherwise you could potentially return a serial number ending in '1013', for example.

Q25. What does a RIGHT JOIN ensure?

  •  that only records from the rightmost table will be displayed
  •  that no records from the rightmost table are displayed if the records dont have corresponding records in the left table
  •  that records from the rightmost table will be displayed only if the records have a corresponding value in the leftmost table
  •  that all records from the rightmost table are represented in the result, even if there are no corresponding records in the left table

Q26. You execute the following three queries. What is the result?

Create table students(id int identity(1000,1), firstname varchar(20),
lastname varchar(30));
insert into students(firstname,lastname)values('mark','twain');
select * from students;
  •  studentid firstname lastname 1 1001 mark twain

  •  studentid firstname lastname 1 1 mark twain

  •  studentid firstname lastname 1 1000 mark twain

  •  studentid firstname lastname 1 null mark twain

Q27. Given a table with the following structure, which query returns all student names with the highest grade?

CREATE TABLE Students (
StudentName varchar(50),
Grade int );
  •  SELECT StudentName FROM Students WHERE Grade = MAX(Grade);
  •  SELECT TOP(1) StudentName FROM Students ORDER BY Grade;
  •  SELECT TOP(1) WITH TIES StudentName FROM Students ORDER BY Grade DESC;
  •  SELECT StudentName, MAX(Grade) FROM Students ORDER BY Grade DESC;

top(1) with ties will take the highest grade and all other students with the same grade (because they are order by grade) and matches the highest grade.

Q28. What role does "inventory" play?

select bookid, boooktitle, bookauthor,quantityonhand from inventory.books;
  •  you only want to see results from books currently in inventory
  •  it instructs the query engine to find the books table in the inventory schema
  •  it instructs the query engine to find the books table in the inventory database
  •  it instructs the query engine to join the books table to the inventory schema

select * from dbo.books here dbo is a schema and the inventory is also schema. If we'd like to specify a database we should use db_name.schema_name.table_name

Q29. What is the result of an INNER JOIN between table1 and table2?

  •  Only records that have corresponding entries in table1 and table2 are displayed.
  •  No records from table1 are ever displayed.
  •  All records from table1 are displayed, regardless of whether the records have a corresponding row in table2
  •  Only records that have no corresponding records in table1 or table2 are displayed.

Q30. To remove all of the content from the Students table but keep the schema, which statement should you use?

  •  TRUNCATE TABLE Students;
  •  TRUNCATE * FROM Students;
  •  DROP TABLE Students;
  •  REMOVE * FROM Students;

Q31. Review the CREATE TABLE statement below. Which option, when placed in the blank space, ensures that the BookISBN column will not contain any duplicate values?

CREATE TABLE Books (
    BookID int PRIMARY KEY,
    BookISBN char(13) NOT NULL _____,
    BookTitle nvarchar(100) NOT NULL
);
  •  NO DUPLICATES
  •  UNIQUE CONSTRAINT AK_Books_BookISBN
  •  DUPLICATE CONSTRAINT (AK_Books_BookISBN)
  •  CONSTRAINT AK_Books_BookISBN UNIQUE

Q32. Given a table with the following structure, which query will not return the lowest grade earned by any student?

CREATE TABLE Students (
    StudentName varchar(50),
    Grade int
);
  • [ ]
SELECT StudentName
FROM Students
WHERE Grade = (SELECT MIN(Grade) FROM Student);
  • [ ]
SELECT TOP(1) Grade
FROM Students
ORDER BY Grade;
  • [ ]
SELECT MIN(Grade)
FROM Students
  • [x]
SELECT MIN(Grade)
FROM Students
ORDER BY Grade;

Explanation: Column Students.Grade is invalid in the ORDER BY clause because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

  • [x]
SELECT MIN(Grade)
FROM Students
GROUP BY Grade;

Explanation: Grouping will return a list of all grades grouped by grade. The prompt wants just one returned row.

FROM Sales
WHERE SUM(LineTotal) > 1000
GROUP BY OrderID
ORDER BY OrderID;
  •  Yes, a WHERE clause cannot be used with an aggregate function.
  •  Yes, you cannot GROUP BY and ORDER BY the same field.
  •  No, there is nothing wrong with this query.
  •  Yes, the WHERE clause should use the SubTotal alias.

  •  INDEX ON PersonID (PRIMARY KEY PK_People)
