Could someone please explain why "Applies data changes to subscribers" is wrong?
I guess the short answer would be "because only the other three are verbatim quotes from the BOL page referenced in the answer explanation".
The longer answer will probably be different. It will be either a long and philosophical discussion trying to convince people that, even though merging changes from the distributor is
in fact a way to apply changes to the subscribers, the latter is more generic and blah blah blah. Or, more probable, it will be an apology and points awarded back.
