Assume that one employee can work on many projects simultaneously. Also, one supervisor can supervise more than one project simultaneously.


1)      Normalize the table through the first, second, and third normal forms. Show all the tables for each form, identifying the primary and foreign keys (if any) of each table and the relationships between the tables in each form.

2)      Build all of your new tables in your personal database at and enter all of the data given above.  Show the SQL for a database query that retrieves from the database just the first and last names of Alice’s supervisor on any project (obviously there can be only one answer with this data since there is only one project, but the SQL query should be written so that it would work for any database and possibly with multiple projects).
