Change query output depending on conditions.
Example: Returns users and their subscriptions, along with a new column
called activity_levels that makes a judgement based on the number of
subscriptions.
SELECT first_name, surname, subscriptions
CASE WHEN subscriptions > 10 THEN 'Very active'
WHEN Quantity BETWEEN 3 AND 10 THEN 'Active'
ELSE 'Inactive'
END AS activity_levels
FROM users;
