If you want to run it in SSMS and get the answer, that's up to you. However that kind of defeats the purpose of the questions. You should make an attempt to answer the question without running it.
Think about it, if someone asked you this in an interview, would you answer it or say, "I can't do it without SSMS?"
Agreed. I have nothing against such questions and most of them are quite informative. But they are easy to answer so i thought 4 points were a bit too much.
RBarryYoung has put the point across quite nicely.
