Selecting n-th row
Summary

Instruction

Perfect!

As we said, RANK() will always leave gaps in numbering when more than one row share has the same value. You can change this behavior by using DENSE_RANK():

SELECT
  Name,
  Platform,
  EditorRating,
  DENSE_RANK() OVER(ORDER BY EditorRating ASC) AS Ranking
FROM Game;

DENSE_RANK() gives a "dense" rank indeed – there are no gaps in the numbering.

We've now got three rows with rank 1, followed by a fourth row with rank 2. That's the difference between RANK() and DENSE_RANK() – the latter never leaves gaps.
