Restrict number of records with a little help of the ROWNUM pseudocolumn:
SQL> select empno, ename, job, sal
  2  from emp
  3  where rownum < 5;

     EMPNO ENAME      JOB              SAL
---------- ---------- --------- ----------
      7369 SMITH      CLERK           1600
      7499 ALLEN      SALESMAN        2400
      7521 WARD       SALESMAN        2050
      7566 JONES      MANAGER         3775

SQL>


[After seeing BlackSwan's reply]

Huh, I understood that ANY number of records (including only one record) would be OK (i.e. that ORDER BY doesn't matter): "i need a test data of each table". I might have got it wrong ...

Use the correct "select" and you can do it.
Why are you selecting user_tab_columns view if you want the content of emp table?
