The question asked what the relation was between database snapshots and recovery models.
The question did not ask the relation between database snapshots and (system) databases.

Sir,
There Were People Who Selected, "None Of the above" Option.
Thinking, putting third option was a joke, is a joke itself.('w00t');
At least I Tried !!

I too chose None of the Above (interpreting that it meant ("it depends") because system databases are excluded from Database Snapshots. If you follow the logic that all Simple recovery model databases can have a Database Snapshot, you would infer that Master, Model and Msdb can have a Database Snapshot, which they cannot.

Thanks Steve. I suppose my beef is that too many of these QOTD's are trick questions and you have to think of every possibility and this time I did it properly and selected the None of the Above and got it wrong. I think that was unfair because the answer I selected, for the same reason you mentioned, is a better answer than just selecting "True" because you cannot snapshot the system databases.

Nice, easy question.

I was wondering about the inclusion of the "none of the above" option. Was this just a joke from the question author, or will people actually choose this answer? (at this time, none have - 56% True, 44% False, 0% None of the above).


Hugo, 24 out of 600 (4%) replies did choose none of the above option.

So, putting this option is now justified.

[quote] That, in my opinion, means that "True" cannot be the correct answer to this question and I already know that "False" was wrong. The only other option was "None of the Above" which I thought would mean "It depends on which database."


This is why the ESP of the day was ruining the Question of the Day. Now people are selecting the wrong answer for an easy question because they are looking for the grammer mistake or the "trick".

BTW: I read the books online and the exact same sentance is there that is in the question.

Note
All recovery models support database snapshots.
