The insert into add  the records or rows to the table 'Stu_Table'.

insert into stu_table values(1, 'Komal',10);
insert into stu_table values(2, 'Ajay',10);
insert into stu_table values(3, 'Santosh',10);
insert into stu_table values(4, 'Rakesh',10);
insert into stu_table values(5, 'Bhau',10);
insert into stu_table values(1, 'aaa',11);
insert into stu_table values(2, 'bbb',11);
insert into stu_table values(3, 'ccc',11);
insert into stu_table values(4, 'ddd',11);
insert into stu_table values(5, 'eee',11);
insert into stu_table values(1, 'iii',12);
insert into stu_table values(2, 'jjj',12);
insert into stu_table values(3, 'kkk',12);
insert into stu_table values(4, 'lll',12);
insert into stu_table values(5, 'mmm',12);
