What is an alternate way of writing the following statement:
WHERE "column_name" IN ('value1')
IN operator allows us to specify multiple values in WHERE clause and is usually used like following:
WHERE "column_name" IN ("value1", "value2", ..., "valueN");
But in case of checking only single value it is equivalent to:
WHERE "column_name" = "value1";
