Minimum number of Relations:- The Answer is $5$. Please see my Reason behind it:- 1. $R_6$ and $E_5$ CAN be merged giving $1$ relation we cant merge with $E_3$, because its a strong entity even though the participation is total. 2. $E_1$ and $E_4$ Gives total of $1$ ... , and $R_5$ can be merged. 4. $R_2$ will have separate table because of many to many (Doubt here) Hence total $5$ tables we got.

Which of the following statement true about B tree and B+ tree index? Assume order of B tree node same as order of B+ tree node. A. B tree index has more levels than B+ tree index for large number of keys. B. B+ tree index has more levels than B tree ... + tree best for sequential access of records. D. B+ tree index nodes more than B+ tree for large number of keys. Please Explain every Point.

Consider two relations R(A, B, C) and S(B, D) with R contains 5000 tupples stored in a sequential file sorted on attribute A and S contain 100000 tupples stored in a sequential file sorted on attribute B. Each block can hold 10 R tupples or 10 S tupples. Which one of the following index is ... in memory) A A dense index on R.B B A sparse index on R.B C A dense index on S.B D A sparse index on S.B

In this Question :- Let there is a Table named Stud_records with 3000 records of fixed length , each record size is 50 Bytes and records are stored in a block of size 512 Bytes , If secondary index is built on the key field of size 10 Bytes and a block pointer of size 5 Bytes , then ... = 88 Blocks The number of blocks in First level index = (88 * 15)/512 = 3 ???? Why am i wrong ?? Please Help?

which of the statements are correct? A a clustered index offers much better performance than unclustered index for range queries B a clustered index istypically less expensive to manage than unclustered index

I have read that clustered index is an index on ordered non-key field of DB. However, in SQL clustered index can be created on Primary key. Infact, by default primary key constraint automatically creates clustered index if one doesn't already exists on the table. So, is SQL clustered index different from the one defined in theory?

In a database file structure, the search key field is 9 bytes long, the block size is 1024 bytes, a record pointer is 7 bytes and a block pointer is 6 bytes. The largest possible order of a leaf node in a B+ tree implementing this file structure is ________. I am getting 63 as the answer, but in the solution, it's saying 64. Can anyone check?

A file is organized so that the ordering of data record is same as or close to the ordering of data block in some index. Then that index is called Dense Sparse Clustered Unclustered Given answer is :- Sparse. Is it correct? This is similar to https://gateoverflow.in/8222/gate2015-1_24 with some variation i highlighted
