Question 1 (Marks 10)​
Consider the following part of an ERD of Learning Management System.

For the given Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) which de-normalization technique will be used? You are required to mention the name of the technique and also write one advantage of it, apply this technique on the given ERD and provide the resultant de-normalized table.

Note: As you already have a clear understanding of ERD and Normalization concepts. So, you can perform normalization at your own. Use these concepts to answer the first question.

Question 2 (Marks 10)
Consider the following information about Student and Course tables.
Table1 (Student):

Header size of student table: = 40 Bytes
Number of records stored in student table: = 30000

Table2 (Course):

Header size course table: = 70 Bytes
Number of records stored in course table: = 2000000

Suppose you have applied the pre-joining De-normalization technique on given tables. You are now required to calculate the size of resultant table in Megabytes (MB), Gigabytes (GB) and Terabytes (TB). The reference column in these two tables is of 9 bytes.

Hint: The number of records in De-normalize table will 2000000.

Note: Deadline for assignment submission is I0th December 2021.
