GATE | GATE CS 2019 | Question 18

Consider the following two statements about database transaction schedules:

  • I. Strict two-phase locking protocol generates conflict serializable schedules that are also recoverable.
  • II. Timestamp-ordering concurrency control protocol with Thomas’ Write Rule can generate view serializable schedules that are not conflict serializable.

Which of the above statements is/are TRUE?
(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) Both I and II
(D) Neither I nor II


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Following Strict 2-PL ensures that our schedule is: serializablity, Recoverable, and Cascadeless. So statement (I) is true.

Thomas Write Rule for concurrency control does not enforce Conflict Serializablity, so statement (II) is also true.



Option (C) is correct.
