Some get confused with the union SQL and JOIN. JOIN will form answers regarding the relationships between the statements that are given and not the statements themselves.

Take note that you want to gather information about the total number of orders. This means that you need to choose the select count from sales which is letter B in the choices. This will allow you to select all of the orders that you may need to highlight or check.

This is a very helpful command when you want to check if all of the orders are accounted for or if you did not miss any order from the ones that you have already input. You will use select AVG from sales if you want to know more about the average of the sales you have received for a certain time period. You will use Select SUM from sales if you want to know the amount that you made based on the number of sales.
