Q. What is SQL and also describe types of SQL statements?

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is a language used to communicate with the server to access, manipulate and control data.

There are 5 different types of SQL statements.

  1. Data Retrieval: SELECT

  2. Data Manipulation Language (DML): INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE

  3. Data Definition Language (DDL): CREATE, ALTER, DROP, RENAME, TRUNCATE.

  4. Transaction Control Statements: COMMIT, ROLLBACK, SAVEPOINT

  5. Data Control Language (DCL): GRANT, REVOKE

Q. What is an alias in SQL statements?

Alias is a user-defined alternative name given to the column or table. By default column alias headings appear in upper case. Enclose the alias in a double quotation marks (“ “) to make it case sensitive. “AS” Keyword before the alias name makes the SELECT clause easier to read.

For ex: Select empname AS name from employee; (Here AS is a keyword and “name” is an alias).

Q. What is a Literal? Give an example where it can be used?

A Literal is a string that can contain a character, a number, or a date that is included in the SELECT list and that is not a column name or a column alias. Date and character literals must be enclosed within single quotation marks (‘ ‘), number literals need not.

For ex: Select last_name||’is a’||job_id As “emp details” from employee; (Here “is a” is a literal).
