The following query returns the result 'LEFT TRIM'. LTRIM removes the spaces from the left, and it stops removing characters when it encounters 'L' because 'L' is not in the string2 argument. Since the string2 argument is not explicitly specified, the default of a single space is used.

   SELECT LTRIM('  LEFT TRIM');
