To select all columns of a table, use a symbol called asterisk or star (*).

Select one column of the table

SELECT state FROM users; // to view the data of the state columnn

Or

SELECT name FROM users; // to view the data of the name columnn

Select two or more columns of the table

SELECT name,mon_income FROM users; // to view the data of the name & monthly income

SELECT all (*) columns with WHERE condition

SELECT * FROM users WHERE mon_income="20000";

SELECT one column with WHERE condition

SELECT two columns with WHERE condition

Select query not only pulls data from the table but also you can do calculations with them. SELECT mon_income*2 FROM users;

Display selected data in another temporary column

SELECT mon_income, mon_income*2 AS double_income FROM users;
