    Elimination of data redundancy does not solve which problem: 

    • A.

      Wasted space

    • B.

      Slower processing

    • C.

      Data inconsistency

    • D.

      Data entry errors

    Correct Answer
    D. Data entry errors
    Explanation
    Elimination of data redundancy refers to the process of removing duplicate data from a database. While this helps in improving data consistency and reducing wasted space, it does not directly address the problem of data entry errors. Data entry errors occur when incorrect or inaccurate data is inputted into the system. This can happen due to human error or system limitations. Therefore, even if data redundancy is eliminated, data entry errors can still occur and need to be addressed separately.

    The relationship among tables is facilitated by ____ and ___ keys. 

    • A.

      Natural, systematic

    • B.

      Foreign, systematic

    • C.

      Natural, primary

    • D.

      Foreign, primary

    Correct Answer
    D. Foreign, primary
    Explanation
    The relationship among tables is facilitated by foreign and primary keys. Foreign keys are used to establish a link between two tables by referencing the primary key of another table. The foreign key in one table refers to the primary key of another table, allowing for the establishment of relationships and maintaining data integrity. The primary key is a unique identifier for each record in a table, ensuring that each record is uniquely identified and can be referenced by foreign keys in other tables.

    Spyware programs can harvest personal data by reading cookies and sending the data to a server. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Spyware programs are designed to collect personal data without the user's consent. One way they do this is by reading cookies, which are small files stored on a user's computer that contain information about their browsing habits. By accessing these cookies, spyware programs can gather personal data such as login credentials, browsing history, and other sensitive information. Once collected, this data is often sent to a remote server controlled by the attacker. Therefore, the statement that spyware programs can harvest personal data by reading cookies and sending the data to a server is true.
