I have a simple subquery in an Oracle SQLPLUS SELECT, but it returns > 1 records.
How do I  select only the first or top record?

other options in a subquery:

select *
from my_table1
where id = (
  select max(id)
  from my_table2
            );


or


select *
from my_table1
where id IN (
  select id
  from my_table2
     );
