Got this right, on the assumption 'SQLAgentAgentRole' was meant to be 'SQLAgentReaderRole', as none of the other answers were correct, and 'SQLAgentAgentRole' doesn't seem to exist.

Indeed, small typo in the correct answer.
However, very nice question, thanks Steve.

(you read that MSDN page one day and you thought: "I shall make 5 QotD of this!"? :-D)

The typo costed me for real,what is 'SQLAgentAgentRole' thought that was a trick any the only meaningful and true answer was the first one,although it did include all the three roles.

But the first answer ISN'T true--it's reversed; the SQLAgentReaderRole is a member of the SQLAgentUserRole, given the terminology used here. I don't agree with that terminology, mind you, because it would be far too easy for a newbie to confuse logins that are members of a role with this nebulous idea of roles being members of other roles that the question introduces. I suspect this is why the linked article never uses this terminology!

Indeed, with simple elimination the correct answer could be deduced. Even if there's a typo in it.

Thanks for the question. I think even with a small typo the answer was relatively straightforward. Three right in a row - I must be on a roll. w00t

Why is the number of errors in Questions of the Day so great?
How are we supposed to interpret typographical errors?
I have yet to build the stored procedure SP_ESP so I simply did not treat SQLAgentAgentRole as a typographical error - I treated it as a distractor.

A message to Steve Jones: Steve, appoint a named reader of every QotD before questions are used on the site. Otherwise, SACK those question-writers who do not read their submissions properly.

One thing is for sure - all those submitters of duff questions will not be recommended to my clients - no doubt their coding is as error-prone as their questions.
