This is not an exam or homework

You are in charge of receiving QueryString information for the page "MyPage.aspx", (e.g. "MyPage.aspx?UserName=Bob"). Which of the following reads the information from the QueryString and assigns the value to a label called "Label1" that has been added to the page?

1. Label1.Text = Server.QueryString("UserName")
 
2. Label1.Text = Page.QueryString("UserName")
 
3. Label1.Text = HttpContext.QueryString("UserName")

4. Label1.Text = Request.QueryString("UserName")

the suggested answer #2 is "misleading".
the "full" code would be Page.Request.QueryString("UserName")...
but "page" is implicitely usable, so answer #4 is correct.
