I guessed 7 and got it wrong.

I've just created a test database to try this.
Including actual execution plan shows nothing...
displaying estimated execution plan shows 8 queries, however, these 2 are counted as 1:

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON; SET ARITHABORT ON;



And both
BEGIN TRAN 

and
COMMIT 

are counted as queries in their own right. I suppose that's fair.

Interestingly, if you move QUOTED_IDENTIFIER to be the last one, estimated query plan counts it and COMMIT together as one query. I tried that hoping to see it say 9 queries but not what I expected at all. Seems like yet another quirk of the estimated query plan to me rather than being anything useful regarding the nature of the commands.



I hope someone can elaborate on this.

Well, this question definitely has more than one correct answer. If you look at the actual execution plan, the correct answer is 0.

The only correct answer is 0.
There are 8 statements in the estimated execution plan, but no queries.

From BOL:

A query is a request for data that is stored in SQL Server.


Query Fundamentals

There isn't a single statement in the batch that does a request for data, hence no queries.

I agree with Koen. Those are statements. As the estimated execution plan doesn't know better it will divide this up into 8 parts. Why the quoted_identifier setting always will go with the next statement is beyond me, but is of no consequense for the answer.

As we have learned before, the estimated execution plan can lie to us, e.g. because of function calls. I would say that the actual execution plan is the only non-lying report of this query batch, and as stated previously, the actual number of queries against the engine is 0.
