Here's a few hints:

  • SELECT * returns all columns. To return only those asked for, they must be named in the SELECT clause
  • you'll want to review the syntax for adding an alias name to a column (hint: it uses the AS keyword)
  • you'll also want to review the syntax for using functions to change the case of a result
  • you won't need a WHERE clause for this challenge (they didn't ask for any specific rows)
