Explanation:

The said query in SQL that selects the employee ID, employee name, salary, and grade from the 'employees' and 'salary_grade' tables where salary falls within the minimum and maximum salary ranges in the 'salary_grade' table.

An implicit cross join builds between the tables 'employees' and 'salary_grade' which means that each row in the 'employees' table is combined with every row in the 'salary_grade' table and the WHERE clause filters the results to include only those employees whose salary falls within the minimum and maximum salary ranges in the 'salary_grade' table.
