Let us illustrate with an example.

Example: the set {Title, ISBN} for the Books entity class. Key A minimal superkey; that is, a key with the property that, if we remove an attribute, the resulting set is no longer a superkey. Example: the set {ISBN} for the Books entity class. Table A rectangular array of attribute values whose columns hold the attribute values for a given attribute and whose rows hold the attribute values for a given entity. Tables are used to implement entity sets. Example: the BOOKS table shown earlier in Table 3-1.
