How would you write this oracle query in mysql? Does it have psedcolumn rownum assigned to resultset like oracle.

select * from
(select x.*, rownum rn from
(select * from your table
order by some_column) x
where rownum <=  100000)
where rn = 1 or mod(rn,500) in (0,499)

It does not seem straightforwardto use rownum in MySQL.

MOD is the remainder function of N divide by m

I hope they have similar one in mysql.

The query above select rows 1,499,500,999,1000,etc.. in a table of 100,000 records.
If there an aleternative sql to get that in mysql

Yes, MySQL can do a MOD and the link has how to do the row number. There is not the pseudo rownum available, but you can do a good job emulating it. Here is an additional explanation:

Here, since aarontomosky is on mobile and am familiar with the ranking approach:

select * 
from (
   select x.*, @rownum:=@rownum+1 as rn
   from your_table x, (select @rownum:=0) r
   order by some_column
) derived
where rn = 1
or (rn <= 100000 and mod(rn, 500) in (0, 499))
;
