Nice question.

I spent some time wondering whether the second option was really intended to have that "b" or not, but decided that as it would also need other changes to make it work it didn't matter.

Happy 2014, everyone.

It's interesting to point out that for the correct solution the starting date did not have to be Dec 31 but could have been ANY date within 2013.

Pretty slick there, Steve! Hehe

+1 The b kind of threw me off a little as well. Thanks for the great question to end the year on.



Everything is awesome!

Nice question. What is most interesting to me is why 23% (as of now) got it wrong.

I can see thinking that

select dateadd( ss, -1, datediff(yy, 0, @ThisDate) + 1 )



is the correct answer if you don't know that the year "0" is 1900. But, I don't see how you can know how to interpret parenthesis and still choose C or D.

Hope everyone has a great 2014! Our most eastern members are already there.

Please don't go. The drones need you. They look up to you.

I started doing the same thing and came to the same conclusion.
