How to check Oracle Database version1 min read

Connected to an Oracle server by SQL Developer or another database management tool, do you need to know the exact version of the DBMS?

This request is identical, whether the Oracle server is installed on a Windows or Linux / UNIX OS.

Note that Oracle Database 12c was released in July 2013 and 12.2 (12c R2) in September 2016.
