Summary

Instruction

We know how to extract rows; let's see how to select columns. We'll use something familiar to SQL programmers: the select() command. Like filter(), it takes the dataset name first and then the column name. If we wanted to see all the country names in our dataset, we'd put:

select(countries, country_name)

Exercise

Extract the continent column from countries.

Stuck? Here's a hint!

Type:

select(countries, continent)
