Consider a table that describes the customers :

Customers(custid, name, gender, rating)

The rating value is an integer in the range 1 to 5 and only two values (male and female) are recorded for gender. Consider the query “how many male customers have a rating of 5”? The best indexing mechanism appropriate for the query is

(A) Linear hashing
(B) Extendible hashing
(C) B+ Tree
(D) Bit-mapped hashing
