I got it right but only by guessing if the question was to be answered or the description.
The problem is that, as written, the question and the description have 2 different answers.
In SQL Server 2005, is the code segment (a local variable in a stored procedure) below allowed?
The question "In SQL Server 2005, is the code segment below allowed?" has one answer.
The description "(a local variable in a stored procedure)" has a different answer.
In order for the description to match the question it would have to read "(a local variable, declared and set in one line, in a stored procedure)".
I don't see too many complaints though so maybe I'm the only one who thought there could be a trick in the wording. 😎
Thanks for the QotD!
