What is Database?
First of all, you have to know what the database is:

Based on these data a solution for any query (curiosity) can be obtained quickly. A special computer language is used to ask questions. Figures obtained as a solution for curiosity are helpful in making timely decisions. Computer programs that are used to store data on computers, manage them (adding data, changing, modifying, etc.) and ask questions based on numbers, they are called database management systems (dbms). ”

When we perform any operations in the database, we can see the instructions in the form of queries in the database. As an example, when we have to store any data in the database, the queries appear and when there is a data fetching, the database also contains queries.
Its a great example in Wikipedia’s words:
On the database of employees of an organization, it can be queried which employees are below the age of 30 years and whose income is more than Rs 3 lakh per annum.
The language of these queries is SQL. That is, we have to write the queries in the SQL language.
What is MySQL? What is the work in WordPress?
MySQL is a relational database management system so that we can create and manage the database. MySQL uses the WordPress database because MySQL is also free and open-source software like WordPress.
