Using the LIMIT Keyword in Exercise #1

+9 votes
In the important notes it says "Do not use the LIMIT keyword" and you explain that by giving this example:

"there may be tens of rows in the result, and you should return them all"

Can I use the LIMIT keyword to get the first line of the table, when I know that I'm not loosing any lines at the answer.

As mentioned in the instructions, using the LIMIT keyword in the homework exercise is not allowed.

If you want to get the first row without using LIMIT, you can order it by a suitable attribute, then pick the MIN or the MAX (Or any other way you want, just dont use limit)
