database is not the default property.Whenever an edmx created automatically create ObjectDataContext.For example when we create an edmx on the basis of Product table(automatically create ProductObjectSet) then you can use db.Products.SqlQuery()

yes but that's when you are querying against specific table like product, but what to do in case of two or more tables like select * from table A,B,C,D; see the examples of "Sending raw commands to the database" and "Writing SQL queries for non-entity types" and specially ***"Writing SQL queries for entities" which i'm trying to do.
