put a semicolon at the end of it



SELECT *
  FROM (  SELECT segment_name,
                 segment_type,
                 bytes / 1024 / 1024 / 1024 gb,
                 tablespace_name
            FROM dba_segments
        ORDER BY 3 DESC)
 WHERE ROWNUM <= 10;

If you copy and paste few sql statements with multiple lines, SQL Plus may display line number inappropriately. If you just type "L" in Sqlplus, you will see all statement with their corrosponding line number.
