Which statement is CORRECT? According to the model, a supervisor cannot supervise more than one employee. incorrect According to the model, an employee can manage multiple departments. correct According to the model, an employee can work in multiple departments. incorrect According to the model, an employee should always work on projects assigned to his/her department. incorrect MC Which statement is CORRECT? A foreign key of a relation A cannot refer to the primary key of the same relation A. incorrect A relation cannot have more than 1 foreign key. incorrect Every relation must have a foreign key. incorrect A foreign key can be NULL. correct MC Consider a data model for the Olympics storing information about countries and athletes. There is a 1-N relationship type between country and athlete and an athlete always has to belong to exactly 1 country. A relational data model containing only 1 table leads to: Unnecessary replication of data about athletes. incorrect Unnecessary replication of data about countries. correct Unnecessary replication of data about athletes and countries. incorrect No unnecessary replication of data. incorrect MC The following relational model represents a HRM system of a consultancy firm. The primary keys are underlined while foreign keys are in italic font.

How many rows (tuples) must be added to the database to reflect this change? 1 incorrect 3 incorrect 5 incorrect 6 correct MC Given the following (normalized) relational model (primary keys underlined; foreign keys in italics):

Which statement is NOT CORRECT? A department has always exactly one manager. incorrect Every employee must be always supervised by exactly one other employee. incorrect Every project is always assigned to exactly one department. incorrect An employee must work in the same department than he/she manages. correct MC Given the following relational model (primary keys are underlined, foreign keys in italics):

Which statement is CORRECT? The model does not allow a course to be taught by multiple professors. incorrect The model can be further normalized. correct The model does not allow a professor to teach multiple courses. incorrect The model does not allow a course to be followed by multiple students. incorrect MC A relation is in 3 NF if it satisfies 2 NF and... no nonprime attribute type of R is transitively dependent on the primary key. correct no prime attribute type of R is transitively dependent on the primary key. incorrect no primary key of R is transitively dependent on a prime attribute type. incorrect no non-primary key of R is transitively dependent on a prime attribute type. incorrect MC Which statement is CORRECT? The Boyce Codd normal form is more strict than the fourth normal form. incorrect The Boyce Codd normal form is more strict than the third normal form. correct The second normal form is more strict than the Boyce Codd normal form incorrect The first normal form is more strict than the Boyce Codd normal form. incorrect MC Consider following generalization / specialization.

Suppose we represent this generalization / specialization by the following relational model:

Discipline (

Individual sport (

Teamsport (

Consider the following 4 statements:

1) The relational model does not allow to enforce the completeness constraint; the disjointness constraint can be enforced.

2) The relational model does not allow to enforce both the completeness constraint and the disjointness constraint.

3) By dropping the relation 'Discipline' in the relational model, the completeness constraint can be enforced.

4) The relational model allows the specialization to be partial.

Which of the following options is CORRECT? Statement 1 and 2 are both correct. incorrect Statement 1 and 4 are both incorrect. incorrect Only statement 1 is incorrect, the other statements are correct. correct Only statement 4 is incorrect, the other statements are correct. incorrect MC Consider the following EER model

Which statement is CORRECT? When mapping the EER relationship type IS_ENROLLED between COURSE and STUDENT to the relational model, a new relation needs to be introduced. The relation is identified by GRADE as its primary key. incorrect When mapping the EER relationship type INVOLVE between COURSE and ASSIGNMENT to the relational model, a new relation needs to be introduced. The 1..1 cardinalities of this relationship type cannot be enforced in the relational model. incorrect When mapping the EER relationship type PARTICIPATE between GROUP ASSIGNMENT and STUDENT to the relational model, a new relation needs to be introduced. The 4 cardinalities of this EER relationship type can be perfectly mapped to the relational model. incorrect The partial inheritance relationship between STUDENT and REPRESENTATIVE can be perfectly mapped to the relational model by the following two relations: STUDENT(StudentID, FirstName, LastName) and REPRESENTATIVE (S-StudentID, Email) whereby S-StudentID refers to StudentID in STUDENT. correct MC Given the following relational model (primary keys are underlined, foreign keys are in italics)

Which statement is NOT CORRECT? When mapping the ER relationship type teaches between Session and Teacher to the relational model, a new relation needs to be introduced. The 4 cardinalities of this ER relationship type can be perfectly mapped to the relational model. correct When mapping the ER relationship type organizes between Course and Session to the relational model, the primary key "cnb" of the Course relation will be included as a NOT NULL foreign key in the Session relation. The 4 cardinalities of this ER relationship type can be perfectly mapped to the relational model. incorrect When mapping the ER relationship type enrollment between Session and Student to the relational model, a new relation needs to be introduced. The 4 cardinalities of this ER relationship type can be perfectly mapped to the relational model. incorrect Both the ER and the relational model cannot enforce that a teacher can only teach sessions of courses for which he/she is qualified. incorrect
