A

A subquery can be used with the EXISTS operator as "EXISTS (subquery)", which returns true if the subquery returns one or more rows. The following statement is a good example of "EXISTS (subquery)". It returns rows from fyi_links table that there are rows existing in the fyi_rates table with the same id.

mysql> SELECT id, url, tag, YEAR(created) As year 
   FROM fyi_links WHERE EXISTS (
   SELECT * FROM fyi_rates 
   WHERE fyi_rates.id = fyi_links.id);

| id  | url               | tag  | year |
+-----+-------------------+------+------+
