What is SQL?

SQL is a language that allows you to make queries to define the data structure and manipulate the data in the database. Data manipulation is the process of editing or modifying the data to keep it updated.

Distinguish between the DDL and DML commands.

Data Definition Language (DDL) commands

These commands are used to define and modify the structure of a database. The commands that fall under this category are as listed below:

DDL CommandsUsage
CREATECreates a new database or table
ALTERModifies the structure of a database or table

Data Manipulation Language (DML) commands

These commands allow the users to manipulate data in the database. They help in retrieval, insertion, deletion, and modification of the information present in the database.

Following are some of the commonly used DML commands:

DML CommandsUsage
SELECTRetrieves data from the table
