Rather simple question .....

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

even though x=y, and y=x, your case statement catered for the following result:
'v3 = v2'

and no where specifies v2=v3.

"None of the Above" should be correct as well.

I agreed!

From the programming logic, "v2 = v3" could not be displayed! In fact, the right answer should be "None of the above". If the editor admit that it is a typo mistake, then both "v2 = v3" and "None of the above" should be correct in order to be fair.

Must say I agree with Henrico Bekker, the case statements at no point say v2 = v3, but rather v3 = v2. Whilst the mean the same thing, I agree that None of the Above should also be an applicable answer for those who are being pedantic.

Got it wrong because I believe it should say "v3 = v2" not "v2 = v3"

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock

Answer is v1 > v2 v1 > v3 v3 = v2 v4 > v1
and not "v1 > v2 v1 > v3 v2 = v3 v4 > v1"
