  1. SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test xlv 36. A view is created using the following code. Which of the following operations are permitted on the view? CREATE VIEW USA_STATES AS SELECT * FROM STATE WHERE CNT_CODE = 1 WITH READ ONLY; A. SELECT B. SELECT, UPDATE C. SELECT, DELETE D. SELECT, INSERT 37. You query the database with the following: SELECT PRODUCT_ID FROM PRODUCTS WHERE PRODUCT_ID LIKE ‘%S\_J\_C’ ESCAPE ‘\’; Choose the two PRODUCT_ID strings that will satisfy the query. A. BTS_J_C B. SJC C. SKJKC D. S_J_C 38. The EMPLOYEE table is defined as follows: EMP_NAME VARCHAR2(40) HIRE_DATE DATE SALARY NUMBER (14,2) Which query is most appropriate to use if you need to find the employees who were hired before January 1, 1998 and have a salary greater than 5,000 or less than 1,000? A. SELECT emp_name FROM employee WHERE hire_date > TO_DATE(‘01011998’,’MMDDYYYY’) AND SALARY < 1000 OR > 5000; B. SELECT emp_name FROM employee WHERE hire_date < TO_DATE(‘01011998’,’MMDDYYYY’) AND SALARY < 1000 OR SALARY > 5000; C. SELECT emp_name FROM employee WHERE hire_date < TO_DATE(‘01011998’,’MMDDYYYY’) AND (SALARY < 1000 OR SALARY > 5000); D. SELECT emp_name FROM employee WHERE hire_date < TO_DATE(‘01011998’,’MMDDYYYY’) AND SALARY BETWEEN 1000 AND 5000;
  2. xlvi SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test 39. What happens when you issue the following command? (Choose all that apply.) TRUNCATE TABLE SCOTT.EMPLOYEE; A. All the rows in the table EMPLOYEE owned by SCOTT are removed. B. The storage space used by the table EMPLOYEE is released (except the initial extent). C. If foreign key constraints are defined to this table using the ON DELETE CASCADE clause, the rows from the child tables are also removed. D. The indexes on the table are dropped. E. You cannot truncate a table if triggers are defined on the table. 40. Which two statements will drop the primary key defined on table EMP? The primary key name is PK_EMP. A. ALTER TABLE EMP DROP PRIMARY KEY; B. DROP CONSTRAINT PK_EMP; C. ALTER TABLE EMP DROP CONSTRAINT PK_EMP; D. ALTER CONSTRAINT PK_EMP DROP CASCADE; E. DROP CONSTRAINT PK_EMP ON EMP;
  3. Answers to SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test 1. B. In the arithmetic operators, unary operators are evaluated first, then multiplication and division, and finally addition and subtraction. The expression is evaluated from left to right. For more information about order of evaluation, see Chapter 1. 2. A, C. The CREATE FORCE VIEW statement can be used to create a view before its base table is created. In versions prior to Oracle 11g, any modification to the table will invalidate the view. In Oracle 11g, the view will be invalidated only if the columns used in the view are modified in the base table. Use the ALTER VIEW COMPILE statement to recompile the view. See Chapter 7 to learn more about views. 3. C. CONCAT will return a non-NULL if only one parameter is NULL. Both CONCAT parameters would need to be NULL for CONCAT to return NULL. The NULLIF function returns NULL if the two parameters are equal. The LENGTH of a NULL is NULL. INSTR will return NULL if NULL is passed in and the tangent of a NULL is NULL. For more information about NULL values, see Chapter 2. 4. C. Group functions cannot appear in the WHERE clause. To learn more about group func- tions, see Chapter 3. 5. B. When updating multiple columns in a single UPDATE statement, the column assignments in the SET clause must be separated by commas, not AND operators. To read more about DML statements (INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE), refer to Chapter 5. 6. C. Since job_id is used in the SELECT clause, it must be used in the GROUP BY clause also. To learn more about the rules of using the GROUP BY clause and aggregate functions, read Chapter 3. 7. B. The BFILE datatype stores only the locator to an external file in the database; the actual data is stored as an operating system file. BLOB, NCLOB, and CLOB are the other large object data types in Oracle 11g. UROWID is Universal ROWID datatype and EXTERNAL is a not a valid datatype. See Chapter 6 for information about datatypes. 8. C. The statement will work without error. Option B would be correct if you used the WITH CHECK OPTION clause in the subquery. See Chapter 4 for more information about subqueries. 9. A, E. An outer join on both tables can be achieved using the FULL OUTER JOIN syntax. You can specify the join condition using the ON clause to specify the columns explicitly or using the USING clause to specify the columns with common column names. Options B and D would result in errors. In option B, the join type is not specified; OUTER is an optional keyword. In option D, CROSS JOIN is used to get a Cartesian result, and Oracle does not expect a join condition. To learn more about joins, read Chapter 4.
  4. xlviii Answers to SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test 10. A, B. The index contains all the information needed to satisfy the query in option A, and a full-index scan would be faster than a full-table scan. A subset of index columns is specified in the WHERE clause of option B; hence, Oracle 11g can use the index. For more information on indexes, see Chapter 7. 11. D. The CREATE SEQUENCE statement will create an increasing sequence that will start with 1, will increment by 1, and will be unaffected by the rollback. A rollback will never stuff vales back into a sequence. See Chapter 7 to learn more about sequences. 12. B, C. Primary and unique key constraints can be enforced using nonunique indexes. Unique constraints allow NULL values in the columns, but primary keys do not. Read Chap- ter 6 to learn more about constraints. 13. B. The SYSDATE function returns the date and time on the server where the database instance is started. CURRENT_DATE returns the local date and time. For information on the built-in date functions, read Chapter 2. 14. D. The first INSERT statement and last INSERT statement will be saved in the database. The ROLLBACK TO A statement will undo the second and third inserts. To know more about transaction control and ROLLBACK, read Chapter 5. 15. B. There should be at least n-1 join conditions when joining n tables to avoid a Cartesian join. To learn more about joins, see Chapter 4. 16. C. The table and column names can include only three special characters: #, $, and _. No other characters are allowed in the table name. You can have letters and numbers in the table name. To learn more about table and column names, read Chapter 6. 17. B, D. You can use the IS NULL or IS NOT NULL operator to search for NULLs or non-NULLs in a column. Since NULLs are sorted higher, they appear at the bottom of the result set in an ascending-order sort. See Chapter 1 for more information about sorting NULL values. 18. D. COUNT () does not include the NULL values, whereas COUNT (*) includes the NULL values. No other aggregate function takes NULL into consideration. To learn more about aggregate functions, read Chapter 3. 19. E. These statements don’t account for possible NULL values in the BONUS column. For more information about NULL values, see Chapter 2. 20. D. Using the ALTER TABLE statement, you can add new columns, rename existing columns, and drop existing columns. To learn more about managing tables, read Chapter 6. 21. B. Since DEPARTMENT_ID is NULL for employee 178, NULL will be sorted after the non-NULL values when doing an ascending-order sort. Since I did not specify the sort order or the NULLS FIRST clause, the defaults are ASC and NULLS LAST. Read Chapter 1 for more infor- mation on SELECT and sort orders. 22. D, E, F, G. The INTERVAL DAY TO SECOND datatype is used to store an interval between two datetime components. See Chapter 6 for more information on the INTERVAL and TIMESTAMP datatypes.
  5. Answers to SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test xlix 23. D, E. In the join view, CITY is the key-preserved table. You can update the columns of the CITY table, except STATE_CD, because STATE_CD is not part of the view definition (the STATE_CD column in the view is from the STATE table). Since I did not include the STATE_CD column from the CITY table, no INSERT operations are permitted (STATE_CD is part of the primary key). If the view were defined as follows, all the columns of the CITY table would have been updatable, and new records could be inserted into the CITY table. CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW state_city AS SELECT b.state_cd, a.state_name, b.city_cd, b.city_name FROM states a, cities b WHERE a.state_cd = b.state_cd; See Chapter 7 for more information about views. 24. B. When altering an existing column to add a NOT NULL constraint, no rows in the table should have NULL values. In the example, there are two rows with NULL values. Creating and modifying tables are discussed in Chapter 6. 25. D. NATURAL JOIN and JOIN…USING clauses will not allow alias names to be used. Since a self-join is getting data from the same table, you must include alias names and qualify col- umn names. To learn more about ANSI join syntax, read Chapter 4. 26. E. The TRUNC function used with a negative second argument will truncate to the left of the decimal. To learn more about TRUNC and other numeric functions, read Chapter 2. 27. C. Oracle creates unique indexes for each unique key and primary key defined in the table. The table ADDRESSES has one unique key and a primary key. Indexes will not be created for NOT NULL or foreign key constraints. Constraints are discussed in Chapter 6. 28. D. Although there is no error in this statement, the statement will not return the desired result. When a NULL is compared, you cannot use the = or != operator; you must use the IS NULL or IS NOT NULL operator. See Chapter 1 for more information about the comparison operators. 29. A. You cannot explicitly change the next value of a sequence. You can set the MAXVALUE or INCREMENT BY value to a negative number, and NOCYCLE tells Oracle to not reuse a sequence number. See Chapter 7 for more information. 30. B. Private synonyms override public synonyms, and tables or views owned by the user always resolve first. To learn more about synonyms, see Chapter 7. 31. C, D. When COMMIT is executed, all locks are released, all savepoints are erased, and que- ries started before the COMMIT will constitute a read-consistent view using the undo infor- mation. To learn more about COMMIT, read Chapter 5. 32. B, C. The operators OR and AND are used to add more joining conditions to the query. NOT is a negation operator, and a comma is used to separate column names and table names. Read more about joins and join conditions in Chapter 4.
  6. l Answers to SQL Fundamentals I Assessment Test 33. C. Since you are finding the aggregate of the aggregate, you should not use nonaggregate columns in the SELECT clause. To read more about nesting of aggregate functions, see Chapter 3. 34. B. You can create primary key, foreign key, and unique key constraints on a view. The con- straints on views are not enforced by Oracle. To enforce a constraint, it must be defined on a table. Views can be created with the WITH CHECK OPTION and READ ONLY attributes dur- ing view creation. Read Chapter 7 to learn more. 35. A, C. The maximum lengths of CHAR and VARCHAR2 columns can be defined in charac- ters or bytes. BYTE is the default. To learn more about CHAR and VARCHAR2 datatypes, read Chapter 6. 36. A. When the view is created with the READ ONLY option, only reads are allowed from the view. See Chapter 7 to learn more about creating views as read-only. 37. A, D. The substitution character % can be substituted for zero or many characters. The substitution character _ does not have any effect in this query because an escape character precedes it, so it is treated as a literal. Read Chapter 1 to learn more about substitution characters. 38. C. You have two main conditions in the question: one on the hire date and the other on the salary. So, you should use an AND operator. In the second part, you have two options: the salary can be either more than 5,000 or less than 1,000, so the second part should be enclosed in parentheses and should use an OR operator. Option B is similar to option C except for the parentheses, but the difference changes the meaning completely. Option B would select the employees who were hired before January 1, 1998 or have a salary greater than 5,000 or less than 1,000. Read Chapter 1 to learn more about writing queries using filtering conditions. 39. A, B. The TRUNCATE command is used to remove all the rows from a table or cluster. By default, this command releases all the storage space used by the table and resets the table’s high-water mark to zero. No indexes, constraints, or triggers on the table are dropped or disabled. If there are valid foreign key constraints defined to this table, you must disable all of them before truncating the table. Chapter 5 includes a comparison between using TRUNCATE and the DELETE statement to remove rows. 40. A, C. Since there can be only one primary key per table, the syntax in option A works. Any constraint (except NOT NULL) can be dropped using the syntax in option C. Learn more about constraints in Chapter 6.

  16. lx Answers to Administration I Assessment Test Answers to Administration I Assessment Test 1. C. Although pfiles and spfiles are physical files used to configure the Oracle instance, they are not considered part of the database. To learn more about Oracle Database structure, read Chapter 8. 2. C, A, B, D. To rename a data file, you need to make the tablespace offline so that Oracle does not try to update the data file while you are renaming. Using OS commands, copy the data file to the new location, and using the ALTER DATABASE RENAME FILE command or the ALTER TABLESPACE RENAME FILE command, rename the file in the database’s con- trol file. To rename the file in the database, the new file should exist. Bring the tablespace online for normal database operation. See Chapter 10 for more information. 3. C. Heterogeneous Services is the correct answer because these services provide cross- platform connectivity to non-Oracle databases. Oracle Advanced Security would not solve this application problem because it addresses security and is not accessibility to non-Oracle databases. Oracle Net would be part of the solution, but another Oracle Network com- ponent is necessary. Connection Manager would also not be able to accommodate this requirement on its own. Read Chapter 11 to learn more. 4. B, C. CPU patches and interim patches can be applied using the OPatch utility or using EM Database Control. EM Database Control also includes patch search and download options. See Chapter 17 for more information. 5. B, C. Only the SYSTEM and UNDO tablespaces require the instance to be shut down when their data files need recovery. Read Chapter 16 to learn about database recovery. 6. C, D. Every database must have at least two redo log files, which may or may not be multi- plexed. Every database must have one control file. It is a good idea to have more than one con- trol file for redundancy. Since SYSTEM and SYSAUX are mandatory tablespaces in Oracle 11g, there will be at least two data files. See Chapter 8 for more information. 7. C. A pfile is a read-only file, and no database changes are written to the pfile. There is no harm in having both an spfile and a pfile in the $ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory; Oracle will only read the spfile when starting the database. On Windows systems also, you will need a parameter-initialization file; the registry is not used. Read more about parameter files in Chapter 9. 8. A. Oracle 11g uses the Automatic Diagnostic Repository to maintain the alert log and other diagnostic information. In pre–Oracle 11g databases, the BACKGROUND_DUMP_DEST parameter determined the alert log location; in Oracle 11g, this parameter value is ignored. To learn more about the alert log and its contents, read Chapter 9. 9. B. DB_CREATE_FILE_DEST specifies the directory to create data files and temp files. This directory is also used for control files and redo log files if the DB_CREATE_ONLINE_LOG_ DEST_1 parameter is not set. Learn more in Chapter 10.
  17. Answers to Administration I Assessment Test lxi 10. C. The shared pool has three components: the library cache, the result cache, and the dic- tionary cache. Read Chapter 8 to learn more about SGA and Oracle instances. 11. B. DEFERRABLE specifies that the constraint can be deferred using the SET CONSTRAINTS command. INITIALLY IMMEDIATE specifies that the constraint’s default behavior is to vali- date the constraint for each SQL. Constraints are discussed in Chapters 7 and 10. 12. C. Although you can use option A to stop and start the listener, doing so temporarily dis- rupts clients attempting to connect to the database. Option D is fine if you are starting and stopping the default listener called LISTENER, but you are using a nondefault listener here. Option B is not valid because RESTART is not a valid command-line argument for lsnrctl. Therefore, the best method is to use the lsnrctl reload listener1 command to load the new set of values in for the listener without disrupting connection service to the databases that the listener is servicing. For more information, read Chapter 11. 13. B. Dynamic performance views begin with V$. The actual views have a prefix of V_$, and the synonyms have a prefix of V$. The V$ views are based on the X$ tables, known as dynamic performance tables. To learn more about dynamic performance views and tables, read Chapter 9. 14. C. The block is the smallest unit that can be copied to the buffer cache. Information in the dictionary cache is copied as rows. To learn about buffer cache and dictionary cache, read Chapter 8. 15. C. Shared Server requires a shift of memory away from individual session processes to the SGA. More information has to be kept in the SGA (in the UGA) within the shared pool. A large pool is configured and is responsible for most of the SGA space allocation. Option C is the correct answer. The cache size and block buffers settings do not affect Shared Server. Read Chapter 11 for more information. 16. D. PUBLIC is the group or class of database users where all existing and future database users belong. See Chapter 12 for more information. 17. A, C. You cannot dynamically change the parameter UNDO_MANAGEMENT after the instance has started. You can, however, change the UNDO_TABLESPACE parameter to switch to another undo tablespace while the instance is up and running. Read Chapter 13 to learn more. 18. C. The Manageability Monitor (MMON) process gathers performance statistics from the system global area (SGA) and stores them in the AWR. Manageability Monitor Light (MMNL) also does some AWR-related statistics gathering, but not to the extent that MMON does. QMN1 is the process that monitors Oracle advanced queuing features. Memory Manager (MMAN) is the process that dynamically manages the sizes of each SGA component when directed to make changes by the Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor (ADDM). For more information, see Chapter 14. 19. B. Oracle automatically performs instance recovery after a database crash or SHUTDOWN ABORT. All uncommitted changes are rolled back, and committed changes are written to data files during instance recovery. Read Chapter 9 for more information.
  18. lxii Answers to Administration I Assessment Test 20. C. The MINIMUM EXTENT parameter is used to make sure each extent is a multiple of the value specified on dictionary-managed tablespaces. This parameter is useful to reduce frag- mentation in the tablespace. Oracle discourages the use of dictionary-managed tablespaces. You should use locally managed tablespaces. Read Chapter 10 for more information. 21. D. Protocols come with tools that allow you to test network connectivity. One such utility for TCP/IP is ping. The user supplies either an IP address or a hostname to the ping util- ity. It then searches the network for this address. If it finds one, it displays information on data that is sent and received and how quickly it found this address. The other choices are Oracle-supplied utilities. Read Chapter 11 for more information. 22. D. Columns that are part of the primary key cannot accept NULL values. Read Chapters 7 and 10 to learn more. 23. B. You cannot insert into a view that contains a CONNECT BY, ORDER BY, or GROUP BY clause. Read Chapter 13 to learn more. 24. B. A nonzero value for the MEMORY_TARGET parameter enables Automatic Memory Man- agement. SGA_TARGET enables Automatic Shared Memory Management. Automatic Memory Management tunes both SGA and PGA components of the memory. To learn more, read Chapter 14. 25. B. The online redo log files are used to roll forward after an instance failure; undo data is used to roll back any uncommitted transactions. Read Chapter 13 to learn more. 26. B. The DB_FLASHBACK_RETENTION_TARGET parameter determines the window for the flash- back database operation. The value is specified in minutes. So, a value of 1440 specifies that the flashback database window is 1 day. To learn more, read Chapter 15. 27. B. REPAIR FAILURE works only after ADVISE FAILURE. Option A, RECOVER FAILURE, is invalid. CHANGE FAILURE can be used to lower or raise the priority of a failure. To learn more about automatically recovering from failures, read Chapter 16. 28. C. SYS is always the owner of directory object. You can grant read and write privileges on the directory to users. See Chapter 17 to learn more. 29. D. Any operation that requires a large sort or other creation of temporary segments will create, alter, and drop those temporary segments in the TEMPORARY tablespace. See Chap- ter 12 for more information. 30. B. Shared servers can process requests from many users. The completed requests are placed into the dispatchers’ response queues. The servers are configured with the SERVERS parame- ter. However, shared servers do not receive requests directly from dispatchers. The requests are taken from the request queue. Read Chapter 11 to learn more. 31. D. Default roles are enabled when a user connects to the database, even if the roles are password-protected. See Chapter 12 for more information. 32. D. DIAGNOSTIC_DEST is new to Oracle 11g, and it determines the location of the alert log file and trace files. Read Chapter 14 to learn more about alert log and trace file locations.
  19. Answers to Administration I Assessment Test lxiii 33. B. The highest level at which a user can request a lock is the table level; the only other lock level available to a user is a row-level lock. Users cannot lock at the block or schema level. Read Chapter 13 to learn more. 34. C. There are no standard password-complexity settings in either the initialization param- eters or the profiles. A password-verify function can validate new passwords against any rules that you can code in PL/SQL, including regular-expression comparisons. See Chapter 12 for more information. 35. A. You can use the Undo Management Advisor to monitor and manage the undo segments to ensure maximum levels of read consistency and minimize occurrences of “ORA-01555: Snapshot Too Old” error messages. For more information, see Chapter 14. 36. B. Redo log files record all the changes made to Oracle Database, whether the changes are committed or not. To learn more about redo log files and database recovery, read Chapters 15 and 16. 37. B. Settings such as the control file autobackup filename format and the snapshot-control file destination filename must be configured using the RMAN command-line interface. To learn more, read Chapter 15. 38. D. Options A and B are a lot of work. The remap_datafile parameter applies only to CREATE TABLESPACE and CREATE DIRECTORY statements, not indexes. The remap_ tablespace parameter tells Data Pump import to change the tablespace that objects are stored in between the source and the target database. See Chapter 17 for more information. 39. D. The distance between the checkpoint position in the redo log file and the end of the redo log group can never be more than 90 percent of the size of the smallest redo log group. Read Chapter 16 to learn more about checkpoints and instance recovery. 40. C. If the redo log file group has never been used, the value of STATUS is UNUSED until the log file member is used to record redo information. Read Chapter 16 for more information. 41. D. REPLACE is the valid value; it drops the existing table and creates the table using the definition from the dump file. SKIP leaves the table untouched. APPEND inserts rows to the existing table. TRUNCATE leaves the structure but removes all existing rows before inserting rows. See Chapter 17 to learn more. 42. E. To tune the instance-recovery time, configure the FAST_START_MTTR_TARGET parameter to a nonzero value. The default is 300 seconds. A lower value will reduce the instance-recovery time but may cause frequent checkpoints. A value of 0 turns off MTTR tuning. To learn more, read Chapter 15.
