Your task is to answer a selection of tutorial questions for weeks 6 to 10 inclusive and submit these answers in a single document.Convert the following Entity-Relationship diagram to Relational Schema.
Given the following scenario identify entities, attributes, and relationships. Determine cardinality and participation constraints. Finally assign the appropriated attributes to each entity and relationship, and conclude determining the appropriate identifiers Uber, the famous ride sharing company, is looking to update its information system aiding the booking and managing of rides.
