Projection is an operation to retrieve some of the relation values.
Project W From X should lead you to get the W column as a result.
...and please try to get your homework done by yourself, as you obviously should have this "Projection" information in some reference books...

hi,

BigSchmuh is right. Simply read the basic theory:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relational_Database#Relational_operations

"The projection operation extracts only the specified attributes from a tuple or set of tuples."
