Non-key attributes are not fully functionally dependent on the primary key (i. like this only) ans) c 5) Which of the following is true for constructor? a) b) c) d) constructor can not be inherited 1NF A relation R is in first normal form (1NF) if and only if all underlying domains contain atomic values only Example: 1NF but not 2NF FIRST (supplier_no. name 3} } Wt is the value of name 2 a) 0 b) 2 c) 1 d) 3 (this question is not full. part_no) p quantity (supplier_no) p status (supplier_no) p city city p status (Supplier's status is determined by location) Comments: Non-key attributes are not mutually independent (city p status). part_no. quantity) Functional Dependencies: (supplier_no.e.name 2. .3) By using which keyword we can⼌t change value after initialization? a) Int b) c) d) const 4) Class one { enum {name1. namely supplier_no). status. status and city are dependent on just part of the key.

city) SUPPLIER_PART (supplier_no. quantity) 2NF A relation R is in second normal form (2NF) if and only if it is in 1NF and every non-key attribute is fully dependent on the primary key Example (2NF but not 3NF): SECOND (supplier_no. Anomalies: . city p status.Anomalies: INSERT: We cannot enter the fact that a given supplier is located in a given city until that supplier supplies at least one part (otherwise. we lose the information that the supplier is located in a particular city. UPDATE: The city value appears many times for the same supplier. DELETE: If we delete the last (only) row for a given supplier. status. Mutual dependence is reflected in the transitive dependencies: supplier_no p city. we would have to enter a null value for a column participating in the primary key C a violation of the definition of a relation). This can lead to inconsistency or the need to change many values of city if a supplier moves. part_no. Decomposition (into 2NF): SECOND (supplier_no. status. city) Functional Dependencies: supplier_no p status supplier_no p city city p status Comments: Lacks mutual independence among non-key attributes.

status) 3NF A relation R is in third normal form (3NF) if and only if it is in 2NF and every non-key attribute is non-transitively dependent on the primary key. A non-key attribute is any column which is not part of the primary key. Attribute Y is fully . city) CITY_STATUS (city. Decomposition (into 3NF): SUPPLIER_CITY (supplier_no. and 2) fully dependent on the primary key of R. UPDATE: The status for a given city occurs many times. Note that 3NF is concerned with transitive dependencies which do not involve candidate keys. DELETE: If we delete a supplier which happens to be the last row for a given city value. A 3NF relation with more than one candidate key will clearly have transitive dependencies of the form: primary_key p other_candidate_key p any_non-key_column An alternative (and equivalent) definition for relations with just one candidate key is: A relation R having just one candidate key is in third normal form (3NF) if and only if the non-key attributes of R (if any) are: 1) mutually independent. therefore leading to multiple updates and possible loss of consistency. An attribute C is transitively dependent on attribute A if there exists an attribute B such that: A p B and B p C. Two or more attributes are mutually independent if none of the attributes is functionally dependent on any of the others.INSERT: We cannot record that a particular city has a particular status until we have a supplier in that city. we lose the fact that the city has the given status.

part_no) p quantity (supplier_name. part_no) and (supplier_name. Thus we have two candidate keys: (supplier_no. but Y is not functionally dependent on any proper subset of the (possibly composite) attribute X For relations with just one candidate key. this is equivalent to the simpler: A relation R having just one candidate key is in third normal form (3NF) if and only if no non-key column (or group of columns) determines another non-key column (or group of columns) Example (3NF but not BCNF): SUPPLIER_PART (supplier_no. part_no) Thus we have the following dependencies: (supplier_no. . part_no) p supplier_no supplier_name p supplier_no supplier_no p supplier_name Comments: Although supplier_name p supplier_no (and vice versa). quantity) Functional Dependencies: We assume that supplier_name's are always unique to each supplier. supplier_no is not a non-key column ² it is part of the primary key! Hence this relation technically satisfies the definition(s) of 3NF (and likewise 2NF.functionally dependent on attribute X if X p Y. part_no) p supplier_name (supplier_name. part_no. part_no) p quantity (supplier_no. again because supplier_no is not a non-key column). supplier_name.

has multiple candidate keys.e. The following relation is in BCNF (and also in 3NF): SUPPLIERS (supplier_no. where 2. it is a bit more difficult to come up with meaningful examples. quantity) BCNF A relation R is in Boyce-Codd normal form (BCNF) if and only if every determinant is a candidate key The definition of BCNF addresses certain (rather unlikely) situations which 3NF does not handle. those candidate keys are composite. . zip) We assume that each supplier has a unique supplier_name. city. To be precise. have at least one common attribute) Example: An example of a relation in 3NF but not in BCNF (and exhibiting the three properties listed) was given above in the discussion of 3NF. and 3. we lose the supplier's name. UPDATE: If a supplier changes name. Thus many authors make a "fuzzy" distinction between 3NF and BCNF when it comes to giving advice on "how far" to normalize a design. Since it is so unlikely that a relation would have these characteristics. part_no.Anomalies: INSERT: We cannot record the name of a supplier until that supplier supplies at least one part. Since relations in 3NF but not in BCNF are slightly unusual. supplier_name) SUPPLIER_PARTS (supplier_no. so that supplier_no and supplier_name are both candidate keys. the candidate keys overlap (i. the definition of 3NF does not deal with a relation that: 1. in practical real-life design it is usually the case that relations in 3NF are also in BCNF.. The characteristics of a relation which distinguish 3NF from BCNF are given below. DELETE: If a supplier temporarily stops supplying and we delete the last row for that supplier. supplier_name. Decomposition (into BCNF): SUPPLIER_ID (supplier_no. that change will have to be made to multiple rows (wasting resources and risking loss of consistency).

Transitive dependencies involving a second (or third. Note that even relations in BCNF can have anomalies. city. Decomposition: SUPPLIER_INFO (supplier_no. zip) SUPPLIER_NAME (supplier_no.) candidate key in addition to the primary key do not violate 3NF. The relation is also in 3NF since even though the non-primary-key column supplier_name determines the non-key columns city and zip.Functional Dependencies: supplier_no p city supplier_no p zip supplier_no p supplier_name supplier_name p city supplier_name p zip supplier_name p supplier_no Comments: The relation is in BCNF since both determinants (supplier_no and supplier_name) are unique (i. are candidate keys). UPDATE: Since supplier_name is a candidate key (unique).e. supplier_name is a candidate key. Anomalies: INSERT: We cannot record the city for a supplier_no without also knowing the supplier_name DELETE: If we delete the row for a given supplier_name. fourth.
