Here in this tread it is about E/R and RM as well as relationship among them and I also used terms "entity" and "attribute". Many books about DB theory also describe connection between E/R and RM, so your question is absurd. I posted this in wish to explain to you some basic things through the example. I mean some basic things which nature you don't understand.
