EECS 484 – Homework #1 Question 1: Consider the following ER Diagram, which associates actors and movies. Which of the following statements is true? (Select all that apply.) a) An actor can star in multiple movies. b) Each actor has to star in a movie. c) Every movie has a star. d) A movie can have no more than one star. Explain your answer: -- An actor can star in multiple movies (TRUE) -- There is no key constraint between the Actor entity set and the Stars relationship set. Therefore, an actor can star in multiple movies. -- Every actor has to star in a movie (FALSE) -- There is no participation constraint between the Actor entity set and the Stare relationships set. Therefore, an actor need not star in a movie. -- Every movie has a star (FALSE) -- There is no participation constraint between Movie and Stars. Therefore, there can be movies without a star. -- Every movie has no more than one star (TRUE) -- There is a key constraint between Movie and Stars, which mean any particular movie can only have one star. Question 2: Define the terms physical data independence and logical data independence in the context of relational databases.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
