2. Each of the following SQL queries has an error. Find the error and correct it. Use HTML DB to verify that your corrections produce the desired results.

FROM d_cds
WHERE cd_number <>

FROM d_songs
WHERE duration IN('3 min', '6 min', '10 min')
d. SELECT loc_type, rental_fee AS Fee

FROM d_venues
WHERE id <100>
GROUP BY rental_fee,loc_type;

SELECT DISTINCT MAX(song_id) FROM d_track_listingsWHERE track IN ( 1, 2, 3);

----select max(distinct song_id)
from d_track_listings
where track in (1,2,3);
