Database Foundations: Limiting the Results: Challenge Task 1

When I run this script in the MySQL Workbench, I get different results than when I run it in the challenge. "SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 10 OFFSET 100;" When I run it for Task 1, it tells me it's wrong. I don't see how it is though.

very close you're trying to return the 101st to the 200th object, so your limit should be 100 and you need to set your offset to 100 because because as we know when returning the data it starts at 0. here is what i did and it passed.

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100 OFFSET 100;

hope this helps, Kai.
