Explanation:

The said query in SQL that selects the department ID, employee ID, employee name, salary, department name, department location, and salary grade of employees who work in the Marketing department located in either 'MELBOURNE' or 'PERTH', whose salary falls within the range of salary grades 3, 4, or 5, and whose hire date is more than 25 years ago from the current date.

The query joins the 'employees', 'salary_grade', and 'department' tables that returns rows that have a matching record in all three tables. The 'employees' and 'department' tables are linked based on the dep_id column.

The "WHERE" clause filters the results to employees whose department name is 'MARKETING' and department location is either 'MELBOURNE' or 'PERTH'.

By comparing the employee's salary to the "min_sal" and "max_sal" columns in the "salary_grade" table, the "BETWEEN" operator filters the results to employees whose salaries are within the salary grade range.

It further includes those employees whose hire date is more than 25 years ago from the current date using the "age" and "EXTRACT" functions. The "age" function calculates the difference between the current date and the hire date, and the "EXTRACT" function extracts the year value from the result of the "age" function.
