Sorting rows


Good job! Usually, we need to extract more than one column at a time. Again, we use a comma separator (,) between the column names to do this. Important: In this context, the comma means "or". In filter(), it meant "and".

To choose information about country names and continents, we would use:

select(countries, country_name, continent)


Select information about country names (country_name) and populations (population).

Stuck? Here's a hint!


select(countries, country_name, population)
