HERE IS THE CHALLENGE QUESTIONS:

There are two tables Fruit and Vegetable table. The Fruit table has a FruitID and a Name column and the Vegetable table has a VegetableID and Name column.

Create a list of all fruits and vegetables starting with the letters A through K . In other words all fruit and vegetables that don't start with the letter L to Z.

HERE IS MY ANSWER:

SELECT Name FROM Fruit WHERE Name >= "A" AND Name <= "K" UNION SELECT Name FROM Vegetable WHERE Name >= "A" AND Name <= "K" ORDER BY name;

Your range isn't quite inclusive enough. For example, Name <= "K" would cover the letter "K" itself but not a word like "Kale".

Try Name < "L", it would cover all words that begin with K.

thanks!
