Why is a classic client server relationship not including answers such as, typing a URL and receiving the web page.

The video says that a classic client/server relationship is the client asking for a data that the server responds to and sends such as typing a URL and receiving the webpage although in the quiz this is wrong. The correct answer is when gaming and the client asks for the highest points scored and the server provides this info. They seem the same to me, what am I missing?

The question is "A typical client/server response cycle might look like all but one of the following. Choose the incorrect answer.". So this time you want to pick the wrong answer.

And the incorrect answer is the one with "A game server asking about the highest points...". That wouldn't be typical, since normally the server would store the points and not ask the client.

thanks u were right
