Answers

Required or Optional Attributes:

A required attribute is an attribute that must have a value in it, while an optional attribute may not have a value in it and can be left blank. The reasoning for making an attribute required is to put emphasis on what is important in that entity and what makes it stand out from other entities.

Keys and non-keys Attributes:

In every entity an attribute or grouped attributes uniquely identify that entity. These attributes are the key attributes and range from Primary key (single attribute identifier) to a Composite Key (Multi attribute Identifier). The rest of the attributes after the identifier are considered the non-key attributes or descriptors, which just describe the entity.

Simple and Composite Attributes:

Attributes can be classified as having many parts to them or just a single unbreakable attribute. The composite attribute is an attribute that can be subdivided into other single attributes with meanings of their own. A simple attribute is just an attribute that cannot be subdivided into parts.

Single-valued and multi-valued Attributes:

Attributes can be classified as single or multi-value. The single-value attribute can only have one value, while the multi-valued attributes usually can store multiple data in them.

Derived Attributes:

The last category that attributes can be defined is called a derived attribute, where one attribute is calculated from another attribute. The derived attribute may not be stored in the database but rather calculated using algorithm.
