Base 66

The contents of the SAS data set PERM.JAN_SALES are listed below:

VARIABLE NAME TYPE
idnum character variable
sales_date numeric date value

A comma delimited raw data file needs to be created from the PERM.JAN_SALES data set. The SALES_DATE values need to be in a MMDDYY10 form.

Which one of the following SAS DATA steps correctly creates this raw data file?

A. libname perm 'SAS-data-library';
data _null_;
set perm.jan_sales;
file 'file-specification' dsd = ',';
put idnum sales_date : mmddyy10.;
run;

B. libname perm 'SAS-data-library';
data _null_;
set perm.jan_sales;
file 'file-specification' dlm = ',';
put idnum sales_date : mmddyy10.;
run;

C. libname perm 'SAS-data-library';
data _null_;
set perm.jan_sales;
file 'file-specification';
put idnum sales_date : mmddyy10. dlm = ',';
run;

D. libname perm 'SAS-data-library';
data _null_;
set perm.jan_sales;
file 'file-specification';
put idnum sales_date : mmddyy10. dsd = ',';
run;

ANSWER will be b because if dsd only mentioned in file option then the answer would be A otherwise it would be with dlm='delimiter used'
