| 5  | Quux  | ... | 2020-01-05     |
| 6  | Corge | ...  | 2020-01-06     |```

#### Solution

This solution is in SQL. Our A.I. can create solutions in multiple languages.
```SELECT * FROM articles ORDER BY published_date DESC LIMIT 5;

/*

The solution above is optimal because it uses the ORDER BY and LIMIT clauses to sort the articles by published date in descending order and then limit the results to the 5 most recent articles.
