Several answers suggest using mysql --version. However, the mysql program is the client. The server is mysqld. Hence the command should be:

mysqld --version

That worked for me on Windows and Debian.

mysqld --help

While connected to the MySQL server with a client you can use.

select version()

or

select @@version
