why not 18?
+5

value X should NOT be equal to 19 is correct answer.

if u say why not 18 ? then i ask u why not 17 ?

Should not eqaul to $19$.

Since if it is equal the same key will have two different values for "StudentEmail" which cannot be true by the definition of candidate/primary/super key.

There is already an entry with same name and age as 19. So the age of this entry must be something other than 19.

X Is NOt Equal 19

Because Primary Key  unique Key It Uniquely Identify All Tuples If It is  19  It has Same Value As Another Tuple So  Other Then 18 Id Preferble
