Thanks for the question.
However, I do not quite agree with your answer that the query you provided is 'a bit of a trick question'; I'd rather consider it testing the ability to logically analyze and disect a given query.
Cool though, that you provided the less complex version to achieve the same result.

Thanks again, nice question,
Michael

sneaky! very nearly got that one wrong.

I think the use of 'not in' threw me off there as opposed to <>

'not in' implies that multiple results are going to be excluded.

Great question and glad it was a bit of a trick, and not that we were looking for something funny in the behavior of MAX!
