Badly worded question but with some research was able to get the three most likely answers that were either deprecated in 2012 or non-existent in 2012!
I never did work out what the question was supposed to mean until after I had answered.
Did it mean three things that were deprecated in 2012 but not in ant earlier release? That is the most likely meaning of the wording, but there aren't three such things in the list provided to chooose from.
Did it mean three thatings that were deprecated in 2012 and perhaps also in earlier releases? That stretches the meaning of "from" rather a lot, but if the above meaning was wrong that seemed most likely. There are plent such things, but there are not three of them on the list.
It didn't occur to me at all that the question wasn't about items in 2012 that were deprecated, but about items that weren't in 2012 at all. A very great stretch of the word deprecated - it's difficult to believe that anyone could write "deprecated from" when they meant "discontinued in" (although that appears to be what's happened here).
So I picked profiler (which sot of fits the apparent meaning, since in 2012 it's deprecated for use in connection with anything other than analysis services) and picked a couple of others (which don't) at random so that I could see the answer.
I do think the wording is awful, if it had just said "discontinued in" insead of "deprecated from" it would have been a much better question. And I might even have got in tight :w00t:
