DROP TABLE tableName

Example:- Suppose we have an employees table

| id | first_name | last_name | email          | address    |
+----+------------+-----------+----------------+------------+
|  1 | John       | Tailor    | john@abc.com   | California |
|  2 | Rom        | Tailor    | rom@abc.com    | California |
|  3 | Andrew     | Symonds   | andrew@abc.com | Sydney     |
|  4 | Miacle     | clerk     | miacle@abc.com | sydney     |
