74. Which statements aretrue regarding single row functions? (Choose all that apply.)

A. MOD : returns thequotient of a division

B. TRUNC : can be usedwith NUMBER and DATE values

C. CONCAT : can be usedto combine any number of values

D. SYSDATE : returns thedatabase server current date and time

E. INSTR : can be usedto find only the first occurrence of a character in a string

F. TRIM : can be used toremove all the occurrences of a character from a string

Single-rowfunctions return a single resultrow for every row of a queried table or

view. These functionscan appear in select lists, WHERE clauses, START WITH and

CONNECT BY clauses, andHAVING clauses.

A选项，mod应该是返回余数，而不是商

B选项，引用文档中的一段话：
This function takes as an argument any numeric data type or any nonnumeric data

type that canbe implicitly converted to a numeric data type. If you omit n2, then the

function returns thesame data type as the numeric data type of the argument. If you

include n2, then thefunction returns NUMBER.

C选项，concat(char1,char2)用于连接字符串

D选项，sysdate放回系统当前时间

scott@ORCL>selectsysdate from dual;

E选项，instr(char1,char2,[m[,n]])

The INSTR functionssearch string for substring. The search operation is defined

as comparing thesubstring argument with substrings of string of the same length

for equality until amatch is found or there are no more substrings left. Each

consecutive comparedsubstring of string begins one character to the right (for

forward searches) or onecharacter to the left (for backward searches) from the first

character of theprevious compared substring. If a substring that is equal to

substring is found, thenthe function returns an integer indicating the position of

the first character ofthis substring. If no such substring is found, then the function

returns zero.

FROM invoice;

The argument expr1 canhave any data type. The arguments expr2 and expr3 can

have any data typesexcept LONG.

If the datatypes of expr2 and expr3 are different, then Oracle Database implicitly

converts oneto the other. If they cannot be converted implicitly, then the database

returns anerror

97. View the Exhibit andevaluate the structure and data in the CUST_STATUS table.

You issue the followingSQL statement:

SQL> SELECT custno,NVL2(NULLIF(amt_spent, credit_limit), 0, 1000)"BONUS"

FROM cust_status;

Which statement is trueregarding the execution of the above query?

A. It produces an errorbecause the AMT_SPENT column contains a null value.

B. It displays a bonusof 1000 for all customers whose AMT_SPENT is less than CREDIT_LIMIT.

C. It displays a bonusof 1000 for all customers whose AMT_SPENT equals CREDIT_LIMIT, or

AMT_SPENT is null .

D. It produces an errorbecause the TO_NUMBER function must be used to convert the result of the

NULLIF function beforeit can be used by the NVL2 function.

Nullif 如果里面的两个表达式相等，就返回空，但是如果有其中一个表达式为空，也将返回为空

98. Which statement istrue regarding the COALESCE function?

A. It can have a maximumof five expressions in a list.

B. It returns thehighest NOT NULL value in the list for all rows.

C. It requires that allexpressions in the list must be of the same data type.

D. It requires that atleast one of the expressions in the list must have a NOT NULL value.

COALESCE returns the firstnon-null expr in the expression list. You must specify at

least two expressions.If all occurrences of expr evaluate to null, then the function

returns null.

If all occurrences ofexpr are numeric data type or any nonnumeric data type that can

be implicitly convertedto a numeric data type, then Oracle Database determines the

argument with thehighest numeric precedence, implicitly converts the remaining

arguments to that datatype, and returns that data type.

99. View the Exhibit andexamine the structure of the PROMOTIONS table.

Using the PROMOTIONStable, you need to find out the average cost for all promos in the ranges

100. View the Exhibitand examine the structure of the PROMOTIONS table.

Which SQL statements arevalid? (Choose all that apply.)

A. SELECT promo_id,DECODE(NVL(promo_cost,0), promo_cost,

promo_cost * 0.25, 100)"Discount"

FROM promotions;

B. SELECT promo_id,DECODE(promo_cost, 10000,

DECODE(promo_category,'G1', promo_cost *.25, NULL),

NULL)"Catcost"

FROM promotions;

C. SELECT promo_id,DECODE(NULLIF(promo_cost, 10000),

NULL, promo_cost*.25,'N/A') "Catcost"

FROM promotions;

D. SELECT promo_id,DECODE(promo_cost, >10000, 'High',

<10000, 'Low')"Range"

FROM promotions;

DECODE compares expr toeach search value one by one. If expr is equal to a

search, then OracleDatabase returns the corresponding result. If no match is

found, then Oraclereturns default. If default is omitted, then Oracle returns null.

The arguments can be anyof the numeric types (NUMBER, BINARY_FLOAT, or

BINARY_DOUBLE) orcharacter types.

For example:
SELECT product_id,

DECODE (warehouse_id, 1,'Southlake',

2, 'San Francisco',

3, 'New Jersey',

4, 'Seattle',

'Non domestic')"Location"

FROM inventories

WHERE product_id <1775

ORDER BY product_id,"Location";

101. Examine the data inthe PROMO_BEGIN_DATE column of the PROMOTIONS table:

PROMO_BEGIN _DATE

04-jan-00

10-jan-00

15-dec-99

18-oct-98

22-aug-99

You want to display thenumber of promotions started in 1999 and 2000.

Which query gives thecorrect output?

A. SELECTSUM(DECODE(SUBSTR(promo_begin_date,8),'00',1,0)) "2000",

SUM(DECODE(SUBSTR(promo_begin_date,8),'99',1,0))"1999"

FROM promotions;

B. SELECT SUM(CASETO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy') WHEN '99' THEN 1

ELSE 0 END)"1999",SUM(CASE TO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy') WHEN '00' THEN 1

ELSE 0 END)"2000"

FROM promotions;

C. SELECT COUNT(CASETO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy') WHEN '99' THEN 1

ELSE 0 END)"1999",COUNT(CASE TO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy') WHEN '00' THEN 1

ELSE 0 END)"2000"

FROM promotions;

D. SELECTCOUNT(DECODE(SUBSTR(TO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy'), 8), '1999', 1, 0))"1999",

COUNT(DECODE(SUBSTR(TO_CHAR(promo_begin_date,'yyyy'),8),'2000', 1,

0)) "2000"

FROM promotions;

SUM(DECODE(SUBSTR(promo_begin_date,8),'00',1,0))

SUM(DECODE(SUBSTR(promo_begin_date,8),'99',1,0))

102. Examine thestructure of the TRANSACTIONS table:

name Null Type

TRANS_ID NOT NULLNUMBER(3)

CUST_NAME VARCHAR2(30)

TRANS_DATETIMESTAMPTRANS_AMT NUMBER(10,2)

You want to display thedate, time, and transaction amount of transactions that where done before 12

noon. The value zeroshould be displayed for transactions where the transaction amount has not been

entered.

Which query gives therequired result?

A. SELECTTO_CHAR(trans_date,'dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss'),

TO_CHAR(trans_amt,'$99999999D99') FROM transactions WHERETO_NUMBER(TO_DATE(trans_date,'hh24')) < 12 ANDCOALESCE(trans_amt,NULL)<>NULL; B. SELECTTO_CHAR(trans_date,'dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss'), NVL(TO_CHAR(trans_amt,'$99999999D99'),0)

FROM transactions

WHERETO_CHAR(trans_date,'hh24') < 12;

C. SELECTTO_CHAR(trans_date,'dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss'),

COALESCE(TO_NUMBER(trans_amt,'$99999999.99'),0) FROM transactions WHERETO_DATE(trans_date,'hh24') < 12; D. SELECT TO_DATE(trans_date,'dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi:ss'), NVL2(trans_amt,TO_NUMBER(trans_amt,'$99999999.99'),0)

FROM transactions

WHERETO_DATE(trans_date,'hh24') < 12;

12点之前，正确的表示：

TO_CHAR(trans_date,'hh24')< 12

TO_DATE(trans_date,'hh24')中日期格式不正确 C D错误

103. Examine thestructure of the TRANSACTIONS table:

name Null Type

TRANS_ID NOT NULLNUMBER(3)

CUST_NAME VARCHAR2(30)

TRANS_DATE DATE

TRANS_AMT NUMBER(10,2)

You want to display thetransaction date and specify whether it is a weekday or weekend.

Evaluate the followingtwo queries:

SQL>SELECTTRANS_DATE,CASE

WHENTRIM(TO_CHAR(trans_date,'DAY')) IN ('SATURDAY','SUNDAY') THEN 'weekend'

ELSE 'weekday'

END "Day Type"

FROM transactions;

SQL>SELECTTRANS_DATE, CASE

WHENTO_CHAR(trans_date,'DAY') BETWEEN 'MONDAY' AND 'FRIDAY' THEN 'weekday'

ELSE 'weekend'

END "DayType"FROM transactions;

Which statement is trueregarding the above queries?

A. Both give wrongresults.

B. Both give the correctresult.

C. Only the first querygives the correct result.

D. Only the second querygives the correct result.

BETWEEN 'MONDAY' AND'FRIDAY' 这里错误，不会按星期的顺序去一一比较

104. Examine thestructure of the PROMOS table:

name Null Type

PROMO_ID NOT NULLNUMBER(3)

PROMO_NAME VARCHAR2(30)

PROMO_START_DATE NOTNULL DATE

PROMO_END_DATE DATE

You want to generate areport showing promo names and their duration (number of days). If the

PROMO_END_DATE has notbeen entered, the message 'ONGOING' should be displayed.

Which queries give thecorrect output? (Choose all that apply.)

A. SELECT promo_name,TO_CHAR(NVL(promo_end_date -promo_start_date,'ONGOING'))

FROM promos;

B. SELECTpromo_name,COALESCE(TO_CHAR(promo_end_date - promo_start_date),'ONGOING')

FROM promos;

C. SELECT promo_name,NVL(TO_CHAR(promo_end_date -promo_start_date),'ONGOING')

FROM promos;

D. SELECT promo_name,DECODE(promo_end_date

-promo_start_date,NULL,'ONGOING',promo_end_date- promo_start_date)

FROM promos;

E. SELECT promo_name,decode(coalesce(promo_end_date,promo_start_date),null,'ONGOING',

promo_end_date -promo_start_date)

FROM promos;

A选项，nvl中两个表达式数据类型不一样，也不能隐式转换

E选项，coalesce(promo_end_date,promo_start_date) 返回第一个非空值，

105. Examine thestructure of the PROMOS table:

name Null Type

PROMO_ID NOT NULLNUMBER(3)

PROMO_NAME VARCHAR2(30)

PROMO_START_DATE NOTNULL DATE

PROMO_END_DATE NOT NULLDATE

You want to display thelist of promo names with the message 'Same Day' for promos that started and

ended on the same day.

Which query gives thecorrect output?

A. SELECT promo_name,NVL(NULLIF(promo_start_date, promo_end_date), 'Same Day')

FROM promos;

B. SELECT promo_name,NVL(TRUNC(promo_end_date - promo_start_date), 'Same Day')

FROM promos;

C. SELECT promo_name,NVL2(TO_CHAR(TRUNC(promo_end_date-promo_start_date)), NULL,'Same

Day')

FROM promos;

D. SELECT promo_name,DECODE((NULLIF(promo_start_date, promo_end_date)), NULL,'Same day')

FROM promos;

NULLIF(promo_start_date,promo_end_date) 如果两个表达式相同，则返回null
