Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves all the rows from the 'employees' table where the number of years between the "hire_date" column and the current date is greater than 27 years.

The "age" function calculates the time interval between the current date and the "hire_date" column and returns it as an interval value. The interval value is then passed to the "EXTRACT" function to extract the year value.

The result will include all columns of the selected rows.
