This forum is for testing post not SQL test.
If you wanted to test your post, this was the correct forum but you failed, please read OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code (See SQL Formatter) and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.
Also always post your Oracle version (4 decimals).

If you wanted to post a real SQL question then post it in SQL forum but after reading the previous.

Regards
Michel
