Database Concepts Question UPDATE

Question Description

I don’t know how to handle this Computer Science question and need guidance.

Suppose a database has data for a table like the Student table (link below) stored in a file on disk. What does the database have to do in order to display this table to a user?  What must be in the database catalog? http://bit.ly/1pgcA7g

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

It has to open the file and retrieve the database and show the relationship when the appropriate commands are issued.

The database catalog of  a database must contain metadata in which definitions of database objects such as base tables, views (virtual tables),synonyms, value ranges,indexes, users and user groups are stored
