-v, --verbose       Write more. (-v -v -v gives the table output format).

You didn't have to ask this Q on EE. You would have seen the answer if you had typed man mysql in a command  window. There are GUI interfaces to the man system as well, if you prefer that.
An abbreviation for "manual", the man system should be your first port of call when seeking documentation. Among other information, on typing man mysql you will see
--verbose, -v
Verbose mode. Produce more output about what the program does. This option can be given multiple times to produce more and more output. (For example, -v -v -v produces table output format even in batch mode.)
