Chapter 4 Lab 1 - correct answer is incorrect?


the problem:

"To complete this exercise connect to your Atlas cluster using the in-browser IDE space at the end of this chapter.

How many documents in the sample_training.zips collection have fewer than 1000 people listed in the pop field?

Copy/paste the exact numeric value (without double quotes) of the result that you get into the response field."

I failed with an answer of 8062 (the correct answer was 8065) but when I use the query supplied in the detailed answer (identical to my query) the result is still 8062

how can this be?

Most likely your dataset got changed due to a previous exercise/quiz
Search our forum with keyword 8062
You will get detailed answer
If you want your query to return same value as solution you need to reload sample_data

Hi @Matthew_Pichel-Juan, welcome to the community.
As @Ramachandra_Tummala mentioned, you might want to reload your dataset. In case you are wondering how to do that, please refer to Question 5 of this FAQ post:
