Entities

Let us first be aware of the question:

What are entities?

  • An entity is an object of concern used to show the things in the actual world, e.g., table, car, book, etc.
  • An entity need not be a physical entity, it can also show a concept in actual world, e.g., loan, project etc.
  • It shows a class of things, not any single instance, e.g., 'STUDENT' entity has instances of 'Mohan' and 'Ramesh'.
