Proper syntax is

Update Tablename 

hence option B(update table tablename and C (Alter table which is used for changing table structure or constraints) are out .

since DNAME is not a field in employee table we have  to use nested query to match DID from other table

  1. UPDATE EMPLOYEE
  2. SET SALARY = SALARY*1.20
  3. WHERE DEPT NO. IN (SELECT DID FROM DEPARTMENT WHERE DNAME = ‘SCIENCE’);

Ans is option option B) i.e statement A
