It has been a while since we ran the contest. I reached out to kind team of Embarcadero and they agreed to support the next contest. The contest has two steps and they are very simple. It took me a while to build contest, but it is a really fun one. I am very confident that once you try out the contest, you will love it.

Contest 1: T-SQL
Run following T-SQL script and observe the answer:
SELECT MONTH(18/200), MONTH(200/18)
When we look at the answer, it displays 1 as a answer to both of the expression. The question is why does above script return values as 1 instead of throwing an error or displaying any error?
