Resolved: Confusion with this Assignment

The Assignment given in this section is quite confusing as the assignment stated is different and the solution provided is different. I am not clear on what this assignment wants me to do. It's very messy and unclearly written.

Hi Shardul!

Thanks for reaching out.

I am sorry for the confusion created. It is true that this assignment is checking your knowledge on some topics covered in previous sections rather than focus on joins. Therefore, please ensure you have completed all sections prior to competing the exercise.
In a nutshell, the idea at this point in the course is to set up the database in a way that will suit us for the sections to come. Therefore, a few manipulations need to be to the state of some of its tables.
To do this, instead of just providing a piece of code to execute, we have organised the required modifications as tasks. In case you find some difficulty with their execution, please feel free to download the code stored in the resources section of the following lecture from the course:

Hope this helps but please feel free to get back to us should you need further assistance.
