Nice question! You really had me in doubt, as 4 seemed a too easy answer :-)

Good question Steve! 4 seemed too obvious to me as well.

Thanks for the question. I dithered a little as well, before selecting the "obvious" answer of 4. A good, non-trick question.

Good question, I know instinctively that each object get's a new set of allocation Units per partition, but I normally do this with clustered indexes, and not heaps.

I went out and did this on a test db real quick to validate what already had known, it's questions like this that help us validate book knowledge by looking in all the little knooks and cranies.

Glad it went over well. This one was hard to write without trying to trick people. I wanted it to make you think, but be solvable without misleading anyone.

I knew it was either 1 or 4, but I wasn't sure whether the heap would span the partitions or not. So I took a stab at 1 and was wrong. I was just too sure that there was a trick there and dug in too deep, because my gut was telling me 4.

So the clustered index bit of the question was just a decoy huh? Either way there will be 4 structures whether it is 4 heaps or 4 b-tree's right?
