I think question and answer aren't synchronous.
If it is question for SQL 2005 Server then good answer is:
"Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Invalid object name 'Employee'."
If your default Schema is not Schema to which employee table belongs.
If it is question for SQL 2000 Server (what syntax suggest :)) then good answer is:
"All columns and all rows from the employee table in descending start_date order, with the start_date as the first column"
