Question no. 1:

Consider the following table:


Player_ID Player_Name Team_ID Pool_ID
WI-06 Richordson WI A
PK-05 Misbah PK A
SA-07 AB Devillier SA B
AU-01 Steve Waugh AU B
PK-01 Hafiz PK A
AU-04 Maxwell AU B
WI-01 Ambrose WI A
SA-09 Dal Styn SA B

Consider the following query:

SELECT Count (Player_Team.Pool_ID) AS CountOfPool_ID
FROM Player_Team
GROUP BY Player_Team.Pool_ID;

Answer the following questions:

1. You need to identify the number of clusters from this data.
2. Secondly, you have to identify whether the given clustering is one way or two way clustering. Your answer should support by valid reasons.

Question no. 2:

Consider the following tables:


Player_ID Player_Name Team
PK-01 Wasim Pakistan
PK-02 Misbah Pakistan
SA-03 AB Devillier South Africa


Award_ID Match_ID Player_ID
01 01 PK-01
01 02 PK-01
02 03 PK-02
01 04 SA-03

Consider the following query:

Select * from Player P, Award A where P.Team= ‘Pakistan’ and A.Award_ID = ‘01’ and P.Player_ID = A.Player_ID

Suppose this query is executed using Naive Nested-Loop join (i.e. there is no index created on both Player and Award tables). Mention that which table should be the Outer table to get minimum I/O by manually calculating the cost in both cases i.e. when “Player” is outer table and when “Award” is outer table.

Note: You need to mention the calculations in your solutions where required.
