Interesting question but not sure I agree with the answer. Seems to me there are two possible correct answers. We don't know if SallyDev was or was not granted select to DatabaseSizeInfo. The user was created prior to any of the code we saw and there may have been a user level permission granted already. So if SallyDev had already been given select access then answer #2 would also be correct. I think the question is a bit too ambiguous to answer this accurately. Great concept on a great topic though.
