Or, if your locality sets the date format as dd/mm/yyyy, then would not the 01/07/2010 row be saved as first of July? That would seem to still result in two matches.

But, are there other national settings that might give a different result?

Nice question, but since this is an international website, it was better to include some information about the server settings of the set-up. Or include some statements like SET DATEFORMAT.

I ran a small test, and if you include the statatement SET DATEFORMAT dmy; at the beginning of the script, the result is 1.

The question asks us to 'predict' the outcome, which implies you do it by inspection. But how is anyone supposed to know that 40358 is a relevant date serial?
Poorly constructed question, I'd say.

I agree with Bob: how should we know which date 40358 is, without executing a command?
Poor question, poor explanation as well (as pointed out in some other reactions).

Yes, there are different cultures with different dateformats. Not only strange countries from the east of Europe!
The different order in writing dates in UK and USA was used as a clue by lord Peter Wimsey. I don't rememeber the name of that story.
