. in sqlserver

Is it possible to fetch the data like
select . from table_name
one of my friend faced the question in interview. I don’t know whether is . or Dot.
Can u pls clarify me..
Thank you & Regards
To be honest, this just looks like a typo to me. I might be wrong, but I don’t think a SELECT . FROM table is valid syntax. —

Correct, in T-SQL you get an "Invalid syntax" error.
