Explanation:

The given query in SQL that retrieves all columns from the table 'employees' where the job_name value is 'SALESMAN' and the number of months between the hire_date value and the current date is greater than 10 months.

The EXTRACT function extracts a number of months from an interval value. The age function calculates the difference between two dates as an interval value.

The WHERE clause filters the result set for the extract number of months between the current date and the hire_date value is greater than 10.
