Well maybe it was not so easy -- currently only 25 percent of correct answers. That's the lowest one I have seen in a long time.

Yes, it looks like most people are thinking that sequence defaults to starting at the lowest value, and therefore runs out. That was the first "gotcha" I thought of, and I was pleasantly surprised that Microsoft had thought of it too.

Nice fun question. And really nice to see that MS has picked defaults that make sense for this new feature.

I'm obviously missing something here.

"SELECT NEXT VALUE FOR SSC_ROCKS;" is used twice in the question, so why aren't two numbers returned?

Two numbers are returned. But the answer is ony one of these two values, the scond of the two, because
the question asks what value is returned by the second select statement, not what are all values returned by both select statements.

Obviously reading the question helps!
