Hi All,

Can you please suggest if the below SQL query will extract the details of the employee with 2nd highest salary from EMP table:

Select * from EMP where sal=(
(select sal from EMP having sal=max(sal) fetch first 2 rows only ordered by descending)
) fetch first 1 row only ordered by ascending;;;
