Problem 1: SQL Aggregation Write the requested SQL queries for each part of this problem. You may (and should) use any aggregation functions you wish. If you feel like you have to make any assumptions, note them explicitly. Consider the following schema: Camera(model , manufacturer, type, price) , shutter_speed, zoom, internal_memory) SLR(model , shutter_speed, internal_memory) 1. Rewrite the following query as simply as possible, without using DISTINCT: Select Distinct manufacturer From Camera; Solution: Select manufacturer From Camera Group By manufacturer; 2. List the camera models, in alphabetical order, which have the minimum price. You may not assume that all models have a different price - in other words, it may be possible that multiple models all have the minimum price. Solution: Select model From Camera Where price <= (Select Min(price) From Camera)) Order By model 3. Find how many camera models are neither P&S's nor SLR's. In other words, give the number of models which are in Camera, but not found in either of the other relations. Solution: Select count\(*) From( (Select model From Camera) Except ((Select model From P&S) Union (Select model from SLR)) ); 4. Give the manufacturer(s), in alphabetical order, which produces the largest number of camera models. Do not assume that the answer will necessarily be unique - it may be the case that there are multiple manufacturers that produce the same largest number. Solution: Select manufacturer From Camera Group By manufacturer Having Count(model) >= All (Select Count(model) From Camera Group By manufacturer) Order By manufacturer;
