2) identify the transiti'e dependencies and normalize it into 3NF ! " 3NF and BCNF # 3NF and BCNF $ ! B C # F 3NF 3) switch the non(key attri)ute that determines part of the primary key with the primary key ! " 3NF and BCNF # 3NF and BCNF $ .

! C 3NF and BCNF C B # F 3NF and BCNF 2) #*plain the term +second normal form+ ANSWER : ! ta)le is in second normal form when it is in 1NF and it includes no partial dependencies. one or more attri)utes may )e functionally dependent on nonkey attri)utes . and no attri)ute is dependent on only a portion of the primary key %he ta)le can )e in 2NF and still e*hi)it transiti'e dependency.that is.
