Linear and non linear data structure?

linear data structure define as it traverses the data element sequentially in which only one data element can directly be reached. for ex- array , linked list. non linear data structure in which every data item is attached to several other data items in a way that is specific for reflecting relationships. The data items are not sequential structure. Ex: Trees, Graphs

What is the first in first out data structure?

QUEUE is the first in first out (FIFO) data structure. It is a linear data structure in which insertion of an element is done from rear end of a list and deletion of an element is done from front end of a list. For example- people in queue waiting for bus.

What is hierarchical structure in dbms?

In hierarchical database structure, data elements are linked together as an inverted tree structure. there's a root data element, below the root ,there are subordinate elements, each of which has its own subordinate elements and so on. It can have multiple levels. Data elements have parent-child relationship. A parent data element can have more than one subordinate elements, but a child can be connected with only one parent. Its limitation is it cannot provide flexibility in data access. because every data element can be accessed through a definite path from the root data element. All the relationships between data elements should map properly when tree structure is first designed.this database model is used in several database applications because data elements of several applications can be organized as a hierarchical tree structure.
