    • B.

      Allocate.

    • C.

      Area Size.

    • D.

      Area Maps.

    Correct Answer
    A. Load.
    Explanation
    Load is the correct answer because in the context of the Integrated Maintenance Data System (IMDS) schema, "load" refers to the amount of space that has been used or occupied. Therefore, if we want to know how much space is left over, we need to look at the load, which indicates the amount of space that has not been used yet. The other options, such as Allocate, Area Size, and Area Maps, do not directly indicate the amount of space left over, but rather refer to different aspects of the area section in the IMDS schema.

    Correct Answer
    D. Owner and member.
    Explanation
    When a hierarchical relationship is established by sets, the types of records that are defined are "Owner" and "member". In this context, the "Owner" record represents the higher-level entity or set, while the "member" record represents the lower-level entity or set that is connected to the owner. This hierarchical relationship allows for organizing and structuring data in a hierarchical manner, with the owner having control and authority over the member records.
