I learned something with this question but had to do some extra interpretation to get the intended answers. I think it would have been better had the author avoided the word "should" and possibly changed those other answer choices to use "must" (as in, a folder must have one or more projects). This would have made some of the answer choices more exclusive in my opinion.

The word "should", to me, implies an opinion and for a QoTD would usually be used more in a best practices scenario such as "Backups should be taken and tested on a regular basis" or something to that effect. Backups certainly do not need to be taken but I think everyone would agree that they should be taken. I only bring this up in the event that this wording was chosen due to a language barrier more so than as an attempt at tricking the readers.

I fully appreciate the efforts of the author - the bottom line is that this question forced me to learn something new. I just wish it were possible to eliminate the "fuzzy" answer choices here. In the grand scheme of things, I think some of these choices are important to know and others are less so. Ultimately it feels like an attempt to trick....

I think it's far more likely to be a language issue that an attempt to trick.

Probably if I had seen the author's name before looking at the question I would have said to myself "Aha, there may be some Indian English here" and watched out for things like "should" having a different meaning; Indian English and Scottish English (the best English ) are not the same, any more than American English and Scottish English are, or Australian English and American English.

I agree that it wasn't likely a deliberate attempt to trick me...it just take so little some days
