in Access SQL, you may try

TRANSFORM Last(Student)
SELECT "Slno" AS Names
From Student
GROUP BY ""
PIVOT Sino;

Display it where? On your web page, gui application,...?
Which server-side language (Script) do you use? Which DB do you use?

If you want to crete a query which will collect values of this one column (Slno) and sore it in one single row, it is only to possible to by creating temporary table with as many columns as you query returns rows. And then, to create (build) a query to insert those values into that temp table.
OR to user pivot table. You could use an OLAP (OnLine Analytical Processing) data cube to get PIVOT functionality. "Pivoting" will be supported in Yukon (next version of ms sql server), and  i am not sure about Oracle.

Anyway, to hard task, so If you can skip to do that on sql server - don't do it.

In Oracle if you know the maximum number of rows you can use:

SQL> select id from t1;

        ID
----------
         1
         2
         3
         4
         7
         5
         6

7 rows selected.

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1  select rtrim(
  2  max( decode( rownum, 1, id, null) ) ||','||
  3  max( decode( rownum, 2, id, null ) ) ||','||
  4  max( decode( rownum, 3, id, null ) ) ||','||
  5  max( decode( rownum, 4, id, null ) ) ||','||
  6  max( decode( rownum, 5, id, null ) ) ||','||
  7  max( decode( rownum, 6, id, null ) ) ||','||
  8  max( decode( rownum, 7, id, null ) ), ',' )
  9* from t1
SQL> /

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1,2,3,4,7,5,6

Or if you dont know the max of rows you can use pl/sql

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1  create or replace function column_row return varchar2
  2    is
  3        v_data varchar2(4000);
  4    begin
  5            for x in ( select id from t1 )
  6            loop
  7                    v_data := v_data || ',' || x.id;
  8            end loop;
  9            return ltrim(v_data, ',' );
 10*   end;
SQL> /

Function created.

SQL> select column_row from dual;

COLUMN_ROW
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1,2,3,4,7,5,6
