Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves the names, salaries, and commissions of all employees from the 'employees' table whose net pay (salary +commission) is less than the maximum net pay of any employee in the company.

The WHERE clause filters the results to include only those employees whose net pay is less than the maximum net pay of any employee in the company.

The maximum net pay of any employee in the company is obtained by subquery, which selects the max(salary+commission) from the 'employees' table.
