If you are not particular about which 3 records you return, this will do the trick:
SELECT whatever_columns_you_want
FROM your_table

Hello Fus,
It's true that if you don't know which records you want to display..It's very difficult to solve. But if you know that, this much of records that you want to display then...either you can proceed with ROWID or ROWNUM.

Ex1) Select * from
Rownum Ex2) You can use ROWID where you have to convert it to Decimal using HEXTODEC function.

Sometimes it's difficult with a query like ...

"To find out the middle record....If there are 10 records in a table then it may be 5th record/6th record......Assume that there are 30,000 records then the query is........

SELECT * from
where ROWID=( Select
Max(ROWID) From
Where Rownum <=
