nobel Nobel Laureates

We continue practicing simple SQL queries on a single table.

This tutorial is concerned with a table of Nobel prize winners:

nobel(yr, subject, winner)
Summary

Exercises

Using the SELECT statement.

Change the query shown so that it displays Nobel prizes for 1950.

SELECT yr, subject, winner
  FROM nobel
 WHERE yr = 1960
SELECT yr, subject, winner
  FROM nobel
 WHERE yr = 1950

Show who won the 1962 prize for Literature.

SELECT winner
  FROM nobel
 WHERE yr = 1960
   AND subject = 'Physics'
SELECT winner
  FROM nobel
 WHERE yr = 1962
   AND subject = 'Literature'

Show the year and subject that won 'Albert Einstein' his prize.

 
SELECT yr, subject
FROM nobel
WHERE winner = 'Albert Einstein'


Give the name of the 'Peace' winners since the year 2000, including 2000.

 
SELECT winner
FROM nobel
WHERE subject = 'Peace'
AND yr >= 2000

Show all details (yr, subject, winner) of the Literature prize winners for 1980 to 1989 inclusive.

 
SELECT yr,subject,winner
FROM nobel
WHERE subject = 'Literature'
AND yr BETWEEN 1980 AND 1989

Show all details of the presidential winners: ('Theodore Roosevelt', 'Woodrow Wilson', 'Jed Bartlet', 'Jimmy Carter')

SELECT * FROM nobel
 WHERE yr = 1970
  AND subject IN ('Cookery',
                  'Chemistry',
                  'Literature')
SELECT * FROM nobel
 WHERE winner IN ('Theodore Roosevelt', 
                  'Woodrow Wilson', 
                  'Jed Bartlet', 
                  'Jimmy Carter')

Show the winners with first name John

 
SELECT winner FROM nobel
  WHERE winner LIKE 'John %'

In which years was the Physics prize awarded but no Chemistry prize. (WARNING - this question is way too hard for this level, you will need to use sub queries or joins).

 
SELECT DISTINCT yr 
FROM nobel 
WHERE subject='Physics' AND yr NOT IN
(SELECT yr FROM nobel 
WHERE subject='Chemistry')
