b. WHERE email IS NOT NULL. SELECT NVL(. WHERE email IS NULL. 0) + new_balance "Current Balance" FROM account. which statement displays a zero if the PREV_BALANCE value is null and the NEW_BALANCE value is zero? a.deptno = 10 c.009 * prev_balance. c. SELECT IS NULL(. b.009 * prev_balance) + new_balance "Current Balance" FROM account. '||first_name "Student Name" FROM student Which WHERE clause should you use to complete this statement? a. description. Question 6 Which SQL SELECT statement clause is an example of the selection capability.deptno = e. 0) + new_balance "Current Balance" FROM account. WHERE d. d. SELECT NULL(.deptno d. 0) + new_balance "Current Balance" FROM account.Question 5 The STUDENT table contains the following columns: LAST_NAME VARCHAR2(25) FIRST_NAME VARCHAR2(25) EMAIL VARCHAR2(50) You are writing a SELECT statement to retrieve the names of students that do NOT have an e-mail address. c. SELECT * b. WHERE d. WHERE email = NULL. SELECT TO_NUMBER(.009 * prev_balance. WHERE email != NULL. SELECT id_number. cost Question 7 When executed. but NOT the joining capability? a.009 * prev_balance. SELECT last_name||'. . d.

to review the structure of the TRANSACTION table d. || c.Question 8 You query the database with this SQL statement: SELECT * FROM transaction. For which purpose was this statement created? a. "Purchase" Question 10 The EMPLOYEE_HIST table contains these columns: EMPLOYEE_ID NUMBER Primary Key LAST_NAME VARCHAR2(25) FIRST_NAME VARCHAR2(25) DEPARTMENT_ID NUMBER(3) POSITION VARCHAR2(30) MANAGER_ID NUMBER SALARY NUMBER(6. to delete selected data from the TRANSACTION table Question 9 Examine the structure of the LINE_ITEM table. You query the database with this SQL statement: SELECT order_id||'-'||line_item_id||' '||product_id||' '||quantity "Purchase" FROM line_item. . to insert data into the TRANSACTION table b. Which component of the SELECT statement is a literal? a. '-' b. manager_id FROM employee_hist.2) Evaluate this SELECT statement: SELECT DISTINCT department_id. to view the data in the TRANSACTION table c. quantity d.

c. The statement will fail because the DISTINCT keyword may only be used in a single-column SELECT list. Each unique combination of MANAGER_ID and DEPARTMENT_ID may be displayed more than once. A particular DEPARTMENT_ID will only be displayed once. d.Which statement about the result of executing this statement is true? a. A particular MANAGER_ID may be displayed more than once. b. .
