How importing a MySQL (.SQL) file to your database

I follow up the "Importing MySQL (.SQL) file to your database" pdf document. I already did this step:
Copying the SQL script
1.On your computer, navigate to the .sql file you intend to import to your database.
2.Open the .sql file in a regular text editor such as Notepad or TextEdit.
3.Select all the content by pressing Ctrl (Cmd) + A.
4.Copy the content by pressing Ctrl (Cmd) + C.
5.Close your text editor application.

My question is about the next step:
Executing the script
6.In phpMyAdmin, choose the database you intend to work with from the Database menu list.

Please select a database.


There are 3 different databases (information_schema (28), mysql (31), test (8) in the phpMyAdmin page. Which one should I select?
See the snap shot.
Thank you in advance.
