i have written my query as select * from results where home_team > 12; my answer is being displayed but still i'am getting an error as DID you select from the 'results' table?

SELECT * FROM results WHERE home_score > 12;

You want the home_score NOT the home_team :)

You will still get results on your query because of the way SQL treats different data structures (i.e. it won't always return an error if you query for an integer in a field typically storing text)
