Agreed!
There should be a rule for QOTDs and incorrect syntax.
How about, if a QOTD contains unintentional incorrect syntax, and the correct answer cannot be achieve without realising it, everyone gets double pionts, whatever answer they choose.
So it wouldn't apply to this question - however there have been previous ones where I've been caught out by sloppy questions.

I didnot like the question...

Nothing to learn as the syntax err is quite obviously seen...

Thought as a typo and gone with the wrong option...



IT DOESNT SEEMS TO BE TRICKY AT ALL

If I copy and paste the script in query analyzer and bulk execute it, probably I would have answered it correct.
But when we walk through the script, anybody assumes there was typo and answer wrong.
Though it was a simple question I lost 3 points Hehe

This is Waste trick and can milead the People.

Such type of examples can be created very easily by putting some error in one of the statements.

Please don't poste this type of things.

I agree - no more typos - this woudl have been a good question with correct syntax, becasue the presence of -1 as one of the insert values would still have made peopele think. Also, 3 points too much for such a 'simple' question.

What a stupid question! I straigtaway thought that the syntax was wrong, and assumed it was just a mistake.

I guess I should have known that if it was a genuine mistake then it would have been corrected by now, since I'm a few days behind with my questions...
