SELECT from Nobel Tutorial
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)
|1960||Chemistry||Willard F. Libby|
|1960||Medicine||Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet|
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')
