It's a fairly easy question, but so far 27% have missed it

Every question's easy if you know the answer. I was surprised at this one, and got it right on the basis I knew one of my colleagues had got it wrong and I could make and educated guess.

I've been writing extensive amounts of TSQL for more years than I care to count and I have never written
 character varying(20) 


in place of
 VARCHAR(20) 


It almost begs the question, why is it not "CHARVAR(20)"

I guess you never did any coding in COBOL. Character varying is used all over the FD Section.

VS COBOL, VS COBOL I, VS COBOL II along with IMS and DB2 ...

all so long ago (after BAL) back in the early and mid eighties ...
