Why is the correct answer 4?

I count 7 types of indexes:
clustered, non-clustered, unique, index with included columns, indexed views, full-text and xml.

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175049(v=SQL.90).aspx.

Even in the explanation given I count more than 4.

Question about types of index structures... not index types. So snagging abit from the end off each line give us:
B-Tree structure
token-based functional index
internal table(aka nodes table)
B+-Tree

This question is open to ambiguity IMO. I went for 3 - Heap, clustered and non-clustered.

This Question is Based on Index Structures

Spatial and Filtered indexes have a B-Tree structure.

Full-text indexes have a token-based functional index.

XML Primary indexes have an internal table(aka nodes table).

XML Secondary indexes have a B+-Tree index structure

Aaaaaaah. That explains :-D
Why do I answer those questions so early in the morning?

But, to nitpick a bit, the explanation isn't very clear. I have read it multiple times and it's hard (for me) to find the 4 distinct types of index structures.

Or maybe it is just friday...

I feel the need to enter the confessional - I got it right but for completely the wrong reasonWhistling Where can I return my 2 points?
I, too, was confused between index types and structures, and then couldn't think of more than 4 (Clustered, Non-clustered, Full text and XML were my answers).
I'll blame it on Friday, too ;-) But, hey! the sun is shining here in South Cambridgeshire, so who cares?

XML Secondary indexes have a B+-Tree index structure.
XML Secondary Indexes: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb522562.aspx

I couldn't find a reference to B+ trees on that BOL page.
Where can I read about secondary XML index structure?
