The following example creates a table called "users" that contains five columns: id, name, email, country, and password:
  create table users(
        id  int(3) primary key,
        name varchar(20),
        email varchar(20),

The following code block is an example, which creates a CUSTOMERS table with an ID as a primary key and NOT NULL are the constraints showing that these fields cannot be NULL while creating records in this table:
CREATE TABLE CUSTOMERS(
   ID   INT              NOT NULL,
   NAME VARCHAR (20)     NOT NULL,
   AGE  INT              NOT NULL,
