Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves all employees from the 'employees' table where the employee's department ID is 1001 and the employee's salary is greater than the salary of the employee with name 'ADELYN'.

The WHERE clause filters the results to include only those departments where the department ID of the employee is 1001.

The AND operator further filters the results to include records where the salary of the employee is greater than the salary obtained from a subquery.

This subquery selects the salary of the employee with the name 'ADELYN'.
