It's a question with a correct answer, no scope for argument for that (as I have come to expect from Ron's questions, which seem to be always accurate - unlike mine, or indeed pretty well anyone elses), so in that respect it's a good question.
But all those settings up front are just a red herring - completely irrelevant to the question. It's not a trick question, because it's extremely unlikely that anyone thinks that those settings could have any effect on the answer. Nevertheless, I think that that stuff detracts from the quality of the question; it might leave someone wondering if there were some setting (not one of those listed) that could have affected the answer, which would be unfortunate.
But never mind, maybe I should like it anyway, because there's nothing actually wrong with it and I got it right.
BTW, it's another Monday question released rather early, of course. Is "dbcc timewarp" somehow involved? Should I be able to answer Monday's question in the small hours of the preceeding Sunday?
