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?

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
