Not sure if it was a browser issue but couldn't copy the script to paste into Query Analyser, anyone else have that problem?

It's an image rather than text, presumably to prevent people just copying and pasting into SSMS to find the answer - ie to make us think!

I got it right, but only because I was expecting an error that wasn't in the list*, so assumed it must be valid after all :-)

(* I thought it would object to Colors being in the select list but not the group by)

I liked it like that. It was nice to know that short of copying it letter for letter or using OCR to read the text back, everyone answering should have been answering based on how they understood it rather than because they simply ran the code themselves and put the correct answer

Thanks

I like the question but more importantly I enjoyed the fact that it was an image. Forcing users to think it out.

I was a little thrown off because I thought it would come back with 4 rows. So I assumed the answer meant to say 4 rows of data returned with row 4 = 'black&white,gray'

Great question though. Here comes the debate on why some user couldn't copy the question and then answer it... :-D
