Good question - but what's up with the word "other" in the question?

Good to see questions on SQL Server 2012.
I did find the question itself poorly phrased, because of the use of "other" and the general term "options".

When I look at the reference, I see the following:
contained, uncontained, partial, non-contained

So it looks like there are more two correct answers, but there is no explanation given why some are correct and others aren't.

edit: after reading the reference a few times, it makes more sense :-D

Bit of a strange question.

Two days running I've guessed.

Great to see questions on 2012 now, but also have to ask what is up with the "other" in the question?

I kind of assumed the 'other' was a simple typo - the better reference I think is just to CREATE DATABASE:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176061.aspx

This clearly defines the options.

That is indeed a very clear reference. Thanks!

Nice to see a question on sql 2012.

But the wording could have been better. Like Koen and Hugo and call.copse I find that word "other" in the question bizarre. My first reaction was "other than what".

Obviously "NONE" is not an option for a contained database: CONTAINMENT = NONE in CREATE DATABASE certainly doesn't generate a contained database! I guess the options concerning contained databases are "have a partially contained database" and "don't have a contained database", but the latter is certainly not an option for a contained database (one might of course label it an option against a contained database.

After much cogitatin I decided the word "other" was meaningless and that "options for a contained database" must mean "options for the containment or otherwise of a database" since it certainly couldn't mean what it said, so I scored the point. But that was because I guessed right about what the question meant, not because the question said what it intended to mean.

There were only 24% correct answers to date; it's quite possible that some of the other 76% were caused by the really strange wording of the question.

Tom
