In "create view", what do new attribute names represent such as in

create view dept_info(dept_name, no_of_emps, total_sal) <------
as select     dname, count (*), sum (salary)
     from        department, employee
     where     dnumber = dno
     group by dname;

What do you mean by new attributes? In your example dname, count of dname and sum of salary would be represented with column names as dept_name,no_of_emps and total_Sal in the view.

Your create view statement will never work. You chose different names inside the view than the table names you query. You can do this, but then you have to explicitly assign the new View-Fieldnames to the queried table names. Like below example:

create view dept_info(
      dept_name, no_of_emps, total_sal)
as
      select  dname AS dept_name,
                  count(*) AS no_of_emps,
                      sum(salary) AS total_sal
     from        department, employee
     where     dnumber = dno
     group by dname;
