How does a Query work?

Let’s say that you want to order a cake at a bakery. You request by saying, “Can I have a chocolate cake with a happy birthday wish on top of it?” The baker will understand what you want and give you the cake with a wish on top as requested.

A query works the same way – it adds meaning to the code to understand and perform an action accordingly.

A database can store data in multiple tables. Tables consist of columns that store the data’s attributes and rows or records of data. A query helps to retrieve data from different tables, organize them, and display them according to the commands.
