1. table
2. it depends, a field can be defined as 'not null' and require a value
3. true
4. true - part of the definition of the column
5. true within that table
6. false
7. true

please verify those:

A table is horizontally structured into column and vertically into row --> False??

Information should have one standard definition and presentaion , unless compelling business differences dictate otherwise---> True??

1. main data object of relational database, which one: column, row, table, field?
column, ex: bookid column in borrowing table reference to bookid column in book table
       
2 . table field may or may not have a value: true or false?
true: we usually call it null, right?

3. all rows of table has same structure: true or false?
true (since table consists of many rows that have same column pattern)

4. all column of a table must have a name: true or false?
true

5. name of column of table must be unique :true or false
true

6. row of table must be unique: true or false
false

7 row of table should be unique : true or false
true

A table is normally represented like a spreadsheet.  Rows are horizontal and columns are vertical.

"Information should have one standard definition and presentation" is basically true.  It would be confusing otherwise.

table vs column?
 I think it should be table right? because table is the key to make database difference in compared with datastructure??
