In the 8th question it is written:

Suppose that the table animal has five rows and the following SQL statement updates all of them. (...)

In the code snippet for the question the 2nd line is:

The table name in the SQL String does not comply with the table name in the content of the question.
If so, it is difficult to assume that the statement updates all of the rows.
"A SQLException is thrown" seems like the correct answer (ignoring the assumption ("the statement updates all of them") and the information that understanding the SQL statements is out of the scope of the exam).

Agreed! Even though you aren't expected to read the SQL, it should still match. Added to the errata
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
