You have a database that is denormalized. Users make frequent changes to data in a primary table.

You need to ensure that users cannot change the tables directly, and that changes made to the primary table also update any related tables.

What should you implement?

A. the COALESCE function

B. a view

C. a table-valued function

D. the TRY_PARSE function

E. a stored procedure

F. the ISNULL function

G. a scalar function

H. the TRY_CONVERT function

Answer: B

Explanation:

Using an Indexed View would allow you to keep your base data in properly normalized tables and maintain data-integrity while giving you the denormalized "view" of that data.

A. Option A

B. Option B

C. Option C

D. Option D

E. Option E

F. Option F

G. Option G

H. Option G

Answer: B

Explanation:

The FOR SYSTEM_TIME ALL clause returns all the row versions from both the Temporal and History table.

Note: A system-versioned temporal table defined through is a new type of user table in SQL Server 2016, here defined on the last line WITH (SYSTEM_VERSIONING = ON…, is designed to keep a full history of data changes and allow easy point in time analysis.

To query temporal data, the SELECT statement FROM<table> clause has a new clause FOR SYSTEM_TIME with five temporal-specific sub-clauses to query data across the current and history tables.

You have a database that tracks orders and deliveries for customers in North America. The database contains the following tables:

Sales.Customers

Application.Cities

Sales.CustomerCategories

The company’s development team is designing a customer directory application. The application must list customers by the area code of their phone number. The area code is defined as the first three characters of the phone number.

The main page of the application will be based on an indexed view that contains the area and phone number for all customers.

You need to return the area code from the PhoneNumber field. Solution: You run the following Transact-SQL statement:

Does the solution meet the goal?

A. Yes

B. No

Answer: A

Explanation:

As the result of the function will be used in an indexed view we should use schemabinding. References: https://sqlstudies.com/2014/08/06/schemabinding-what-why/

You create a table named Products by running the following Transact-SQL statement:

You have the following stored procedure:

You need to modify the stored procedure to meet the following new requirements:

- Insert product records as a single unit of work.

- Return error number 51000 when a product fails to insert into the database.

- If a product record insert operation fails, the product information must not be permanently written to the database.

Solution: You run the following Transact-SQL statement:

Does the solution meet the goal?

A. Yes

B. No

Answer: B

Explanation:

A transaction is correctly defined for the INSERT INTO ..VALUES statement, and if there is an error in the transaction it will be caught ant he transaction will be rolled back. However, error number 51000 will not be returned, as it is only used in an IF @ERROR = 51000 statement.

Note: @@TRANCOUNT returns the number of BEGIN TRANSACTION statements that

have occurred on the current connection.

You need to ensure that both records are inserted or neither record is inserted. Solution: You run the following Transact-SQL statement:

Does the solution meet the goal?

A. Yes

B. No

Answer: B

Explanation:

As there are two separate INSERT INTO statements we cannot ensure that both or neither records is inserted.


Q39. DRAG DROP

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that use the same scenario. For your convenience, the scenario is repeated in each question. Each question presents a different goal and answer choices, but the text of the scenario is exactly the same in each question on this series.

You have a database that tracks orders and deliveries for customers in North America. System versioning is enabled for all tables. The database contains the Sales.Customers, Application.Cities, and Sales.CustomerCategories tables.

Details for the Sales.Customers table are shown in the following table:

Details for the Application.Cities table are shown in the following table:

Details for the Sales.CustomerCategories table are shown in the following table:

You are creating a report to show when the first customer account was opened in each city. The report contains a line chart with the following characteristics:

- The chart contains a data point for each city, with lines connecting the points.

- The X axis contains the position that the city occupies relative to other cities.

- The Y axis contains the date that the first account in any city was opened. An example chart is shown below for five cities:

During a sales promotion, customers from various cities open new accounts on the same date.

You need to write a query that returns the data for the chart.

How should you complete the Transact-SQL statement? To answer, drag the appropriate Transact-SQL segments to the correct locations. Each Transact-SQL segment may be used once, more than once, or not at all. You may need to drag the split bar between panes or scroll to view content.

NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

Answer:

Explanation:

Box 1: RANK() OVER

RANK returns the rank of each row within the partition of a result set. The rank of a row is one plus the number of ranks that come before the row in question.

ROW_NUMBER and RANK are similar. ROW_NUMBER numbers all rows sequentially (for example 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).


Q40. HOTSPOT

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that use the same scenario. For your convenience, the scenario is repeated in each question. Each question presents a different goal and answer choices, but the text of the scenario is exactly the same in each question in this series.

You query a database that includes two tables: Project and Task. The Project table includes the following columns:

You need to identify the owner of each task by using the following rules:

- Return each task’s owner if the task has an owner.

- If a task has no owner, but is associated with a project that has an owner, return the project’s owner.

- Return the value -1 for all other cases.

How should you complete the Transact-SQL statement? To answer, select the appropriate Transact-SQL segments in the answer area.

Answer:

Explanation:

Box 1: COALESCE

COALESCE evaluates the arguments in order and returns the current value of the first

expression that initially does not evaluate to NULL.

Box 2: T.UserID, p.UserID, -1

- Return each task’s owner if the task has an owner.

- If a task has no owner, but is associated with a project that has an owner, return the project’s owner.

- Return the value -1 for all other cases.

Box 3: RIGHT JOIN

The RIGHT JOIN keyword returns all rows from the right table (table2), with the matching rows in the left table (table1). The result is NULL in the left side when there is no match. Here the right side could be NULL as the projectID of the task could be NULL.
