I hate answers like "You must restart the SQL Server instance" (emphasis is mine) on multiple choice question especially when there is more than one choice because you don't actually have to restart the SQL Server instance. Patently, it is NOT a "MUST". This is why I hate tests. The answers are misleading.
I got the answers right but only because I forced myself to ignore the words "You MUST".
There's also a 3rd option and that's to bounce the whole server, not just the instance. It's important to know that because that will frequently be required when you do Windows Updates. Then, I suppose you could get into the semantics of that also causing the instance to "bounce".
I hate tests because the questions are either written incorrectly, the answers are written incorrectly, or the author of the questions is more intent on trying to trick the test taker out of the correct answers than finding out if the test taker knows the correct answers. 😉
