I know that

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\usepackage{extarrows}
\begin{document}
$\mathscr{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ}$
\end{document}    

produce :

but I want to know what is the necessary command to get :

\mathscr will give script fonts in math-mode only for upper cased letters; the shape will depend on the package used. As far as I know, there's no font providing this kind of fonts for lower-cased letters in math-mode. Don't use \mathscr to write regular, non-math text (it's intended to be used in math expressions).

In text mode, you can use the calligra font, provided by the calligra package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{calligra}

\begin{document}

\normalfont\calligra
ABCDEFGHIJ\par
KLMNOPQRST\par
UVWXYZ

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

I like mathematics. Mathematics is a language.
\end{document}

Another option would be to use XeLaTeX and a font like the one in the image.

  • the stix fonts include lowercase script letters suitable for use in math; these haven't been incorporated yet into the comprehensive symbols list. the design is not as heavily sloped as most text scripts, so spacing and application of sub- and superscripts are somewhat less fraught than for most script alphabets intended for text. beta latex support is available, or the (opentype) fonts can be used directly with xetes.
