Hi, Can you tell me the answer for this question?

Q 6.The database was started up using a text parameter file.

What will be the default scope of changes made by using the SET clause of the ALTER SYSTEM statement?

A. Only MEMORY is updated.

B. Only SPFILE values are updated.

C. Only init.ora parameters are updated.

D. Both SPFILE and MEMORY memory values are updated.

E. Boht init.ora parameters and SPFILE values are updated.

Ans: D

I would have thought that it's A. Which is the default operation on previous Oracle releases. D is if the instance
was started using a server parameter file.

The best thing to do is try it.

When I start up my test system with the pfile I'm able to alter parameters so the scope must be defaulting to memory. If not I would expect to see an error saying there is no spfile.
