ORA 00933 - SQL command not properly ended

Both of the following SQL statements give me the ORA 00933 error.

SELECT DISTINCT s.customer_name FROM depositor AS s WHERE NOT EXISTS ( (SELECT branch_name FROM branch WHERE branch_city = 'Brooklyn') EXCEPT (SELECT r.branch_name FROM depositor AS t, account AS r WHERE t.account_number = r.account_number AND s.customer_name = t.customer_name) );

SELECT t.customer_name FROM depositor AS t WHERE UNIQUE (SELECT r.customer_name FROM account, depositor AS r WHERE t.customer_name = r.customer_name AND r.account_number = account.account_number AND account.branch_name = 'Perryridge');

Any idea what is wrong with these query statements?  Yes, this is part of a homework assignment.  I am working on a graduate level database course and these two query statements have had me stumped for the last hour.  I am not asking anyone to do my homework, but any suggestions or guideance would be greatly appreciated.

The EXCEPT and WHERE UNIQUE clauses are not Oracle syntax

EXCEPT is available in MS SQL Server.

the WHERE UNIQUE is unkown to me...

there are other modification operators for subqueries:
ANY  SOME   ALL

Depends how you are running them.  Some tools will fail if you are using the incorrect scripting engine.  For example if you are using toad you could select a single statement and run the single statement without issue.

Otherwise, you could select a run as script option in which case you shouldn't have an issue.
