Besides the obvious "why?" ...
A table, by itself, does not have "every second record", as it has
order of records.
A resultset of rows (being a selection of records from one or more tables)
doesn't have a specific order, unless you tell it to have one.
Only getting every 2nd row of a resultset, IMO, would be much easier
by doing that on the client side.
