Relational database is a collection of Relations or Table. A table is also known as relation in RDBMS. Fields are the column of the relation or tables. Records are each row in relation. Keys are the constraints in a relation.

Attribute may refer to columns in a table and tuple refers to rows in a table.

The values of the attribute should be present in the domain. Domain is a set of values permitted.

Instance is an instance of time and schema is a representation.

An external schema specifies a view of the data in terms of the conceptual level. This is also referred to as the view level.

A data manipulation language (DML) is a family of syntax elements similar to a computer programming language used for selecting, requesting, inserting, deleting and updating data in a database.

DDL stands for Data Definition Language.

Ans8. (d)

Ans9. (c)
Super key is a set of one or more attributes taken collectively to uniquely identify a record.
