The information Technology SBA requires that we perform a query in the database which "calculates the sum of the deposits to be refunded to each party (only candidates who received 20 percent or more of votes are eligible for refund); and shows the party name, acronym and sum refunded to each party." It is very difficult and I was wondering if any of the students/parents/examiners here could render some kind assistance.
Secondly, I was browsing through some search suggestions on Google and I noticed a site mentioning that CSEC students were giving Trace Tables which "were not required" as part of a report from CXC. Unfortunately, due to technical reasons (internet) I was unable to read further. Since the SBA requires that we "design and execute a trace table that accepts vote data at a polling station in a constituency. Data should include special votes, general (valid) votes and spoilt votes. Votes should be cast fort any one of four parties, DAP, WNA, UPM or PDR. The table should trace the increment of each vote category and determine which party secured the majority of votes. The table should have at least ten iterations and should end when a specific value is entered." I was again puzzled as to why the SBA would require such a task if it was not necessary. Kindly offer some assistance to clear up any misunderstanding on my part or some guidance.
