Current quiz question does not make sense.

Today's report quiz question is Count the total number of orders that have the status of shipped today.

This is an impossible question as the only data relating to date is the date that it was ordered.

Hi Ryan,

I'm not sure which challenge you are working on, but it sounds like the question is asking about the status of the orders, not the date. The status would have a value of "shipped today", and that is what you would need to include in your query. The actual date seems to be irrelevant based on what you described.

If this is not the case then please link to the challenge and we can look at it closer.

Good luck.

You are correct; that question was worded incorrectly. What worked for me was the assumption that all orders shipped same-day, even though the problem did not state this.

So, everything with the status of shipped and an ordered-on-date of today satisfied the checker for me, as loose as that logic happens to be.
