Sample Solution:

SELECT emp_id,
FROM employees
WHERE 12*(salary+commission) < 34000
  AND commission IS NOT NULL
  AND commission < salary
  AND job_name = 'SALESMAN'
  AND dep_id = 3001;

Sample Output:

 emp_id | emp_name | salary  | job_name
  64989 | ADELYN   | 1700.00 | SALESMAN
  65271 | WADE     | 1350.00 | SALESMAN
  68454 | TUCKER   | 1600.00 | SALESMAN

The said query in SQL that retrieves "emp_id", "emp_name", "salary", and "job_name" from the 'employees' table for salesmen in department 3001 whose annual income (including commission) is less than 34000.

WHERE clause includes rows in which the calculated annual income (salary + commission) multiplied by 12 must not exceed 34000; the "commission" column must not be null and must not be equal to the "salary" column, the "job_name" column must be 'SALESMAN', and the "dep_id" column must be 3001.
