What does this mean?

1. SELECT title || CHR(10) || pubdate FROM books;

CHR() is new to me...

2.  Is below query correct? If no, why?

SELECT DISTINCT customer, DISTINCT order FROM orders;

I will google, but your help wouldn't harm.

>CHR() is new to me...
CHR(x) returns the string with the character specified by the asci code X passed as argument. character 10 is the newline.

>2.  Is below query correct? If no, why?
no. DISTINCT comes only once, directly after the SELECT.

this would be correct syntax.
SELECT DISTINCT customer, order FROM orders;

however, you need to clarify what exactly the query should do
