SELECT yr, subject, winner FROM nobel WHERE yr = 1950
Show who won the 1962 prize for literature.
SELECT winner FROM nobel WHERE yr = 1960 AND subject = 'physics'
SELECT winner FROM nobel WHERE yr = 1962 AND subject = 'literature'

SELECT winner, subject, subject IN ('physics','chemistry') FROM nobel WHERE yr=1984 ORDER BY subject,winner
select winner, subject from nobel where yr=1984 order by CASE WHEN subject in ('physics','chemistry') THEN 1 ELSE 0 END, subject,winner
