On site means on site, not Azure - plain and simple.
Precisely. All on-site databases are 2012, meaning 2000 can't be the answer. And since an Azure database can't be 2000 (can it?!), Azure was the only possible answer. (I construed "on-site databases are 2012" as meaning "all on-site databases are 2012", not "all databases are on-site and 2012" - I think that was the most reasonable interpretation.)
I disagree there. It doesn't say that all on site databases are 2012, it says that uses 2012. That doesn't preclude there being 2000 databases on site. It is therefore no less likely than them using Azure and, given that there is no mention of Azure in the question, in my opinion, actually more likely.
On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
