    I try to select query an output that will limit the number or records returned, such as 10, how do I make such query?

    Where Rownum <= 10

    Be careful with this if you're using an order by clause.

    e.g. select * from emp
    where rownum <= 10
    order by emp_no

    will return the first 10 rows and then sort them by emp_no.

    It will not sort the data before selecting 10 rows.
