Hey Shraddha,

I understand your doubts about fetching the data from the table. But Select * is not efficient to fetch the data. It is time-consuming and less efficient. 

So if you go for mentioning the columns in your table it will be more efficient. 

Select column1,column 2 ...from table;

I hope this answer will help you to understand the concept.
