Explanation:

The provided query in SQL that selects all the rows from the 'employees' table where the year value of the "hire_date" column is equal to 1991.

The "to_char" function converts the "hire_date" column to a string representation of the year using the 'YYYY' format. The comparison operator '=' is then used to compare this string to the string '1991'.
