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

nobel(yr, subject, winner)

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

1962 Literature

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'

Albert Einstein

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

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

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

SELECT winner FROM nobel
  WHERE winner LIKE 'John %'

Chemistry and Physics from different years

Show the Physics winners for 1980 together with the Chemistry winners for 1984.

SELECT *
FROM nobel
WHERE (subject='physics' AND yr=1980) OR
      (subject='chemistry' AND yr=1984)

Exclude Chemists and Medics

Show the winners for 1980 excluding the Chemistry and Medicine

SELECT *
FROM nobel
WHERE yr=1980 AND
  subject NOT IN ('Chemistry','Medicine')

Early Medicine, Late Literature

Show who won a 'Medicine' prize in an early year (before 1910, not including 1910) together with winners of a 'Literature' prize in a later year (after 2004, including 2004)

SELECT *
FROM nobel 
WHERE (subject='Medicine' and yr <1910) OR
      (subject='Literature' AND yr>=2004)

Harder Questions

Umlaut

Find all details of the prize won by PETER GRÜNBERG

The u in his name has an umlaut. You may find this link useful https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9C#Keyboarding
SELECT *
FROM nobel 
WHERE winner in ('Peter Grünberg')

Apostrophe

Find all details of the prize won by EUGENE O'NEILL

You can't put a single quote in a quote string directly. You can use two single quotes within a quoted string.
SELECT *
FROM nobel 
WHERE winner in ('Eugene O''Neill')

Knights of the realm

Knights in order

List the winners, year and subject where the winner starts with Sir. Show the the most recent first, then by name order.

SELECT winner, yr, subject
FROM nobel 
WHERE winner LIKE 'Sir%'
ORDER BY yr DESC, winner

Chemistry and Physics last

The expression subject IN ('Chemistry','Physics') can be used as a value - it will be 0 or 1.

Show the 1984 winners and subject ordered by subject and winner name; but list Chemistry and Physics last.

SELECT winner, subject, subject IN ('Physics','Chemistry')
  FROM nobel
 WHERE yr=1984
 ORDER BY subject,winner
select winner, subject
from nobel
where yr=1984
order by subject in ('Physics','Chemistry'),subject,winner
