Nice question, but just one small problem:

"In prefix compression, does the entire prefix stored in the header need to match the data to be used?"
--> requires the answer NO to be correct

"In other words, if I have a prefix of "aaabcd" in the header and a data element of "aaabfgr" in a field, can prefix compression be applied?"
--> requires the answer YES to be correct

I chose NO, but apparently that was the wrong one, although I meant to answer the first question.

Yep, 2 different questions with 2 different answers.

Fortunately for me I answered the second question, but I can understand the frustration for those that answered the first.

I answered the second sentence, after reading the whole question (or, rather, both questions ). But I did that with some trepidation, as guessing which of the two questions to answer wasn't a sure thing.

Very interesting question though. I used to assume that a full match was required and was startled to discover it wasn't (and because I found it startling, I remembered it).

It's impossible to answer this. My mind is in an infinite loop...
