  2  WHERE department_name LIKE 'C%';
DEPARTMENT_ID DEPARTMENT_NAME      MANAGER_ID LOCATION_ID
------------- -------------------- ---------- -----------
          130 Corporate Tax                          1700
          140 Control And Credit                     1700
          180 Construction                           1700
