2. a) What guidelines would you use for whether to use a binary or ternary relationship when doing ER design? Explain with an example. [8] b) A university database contains information about professors (identified by SSN) and courses (identified by courseid). Professors teach courses; the following situation concerns the Teaches relationship set. Professors can teach the same course several semesters, and each offering must be recorded. Draw an ER diagram for the above situation. [8] 3. Explain the logical database design with suitable examples. [16]

DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS


(Common to Mechanical Engineering and Electronics & Computer Engineering) Time: 3 Hours Answer any FIVE Questions All Questions carry equal marks ******* 1. a) Explain the structure of a database system with a neat diagram. b) Discuss about the role of DBA c) What is query processor?

2. A company database needs to store information about employees (identified by ssn, with salary and phone as attributes), departments (identified by dno, with dname and budget as attributes), and children of employees (with name and age as attributes). Employees work in departments; each department is managed by an employee; a child must be identified uniquely by name when the parent (assume that only one parent works for the company) is known. The information of the child is not required if the parent leaves the company. Perform the conceptual design with the ER model to capture the above information. [16] 3. a) Explain how relationship sets with key constraints and participation constraints are translated from ER to relational model. [8] b) What is a view? Explain how views support logical data independence and security. Why does SQL restrict the class of views that can be updated? [8] 4. a) Explain the differences between triggers and integrity constraints, and describe when you would use triggers over integrity constraints and vice versa. [8] b) Consider the following schema and answer the queries given below in SQL. Sailors (sid: integer, sname: string, rating: integer, age: real) Boats (bid: integer, bname: string, color: string) Reserves (sid: integer, bid: integer, day: date) i) Find the age of the youngest sailor who is eligible to vote (i.e., is at least 18 years old) for each rating level with at least two such sailors. ii) Compute increments for the ratings of persons who have sailed two different boats on the same day. iii) Find the names of the sailors who have reserved boat 103. iv) Find the names of sailors who have not reserved a red boat.
