Students will need to develop schema that will model a library – containing only books – andbe able to perform the following tasks:• Add a book• Add a borrower• Delete a book• Delete a borrower• Lend a book to a borrower• Return a book from a borrower• Enquire about a book• Reserve a book• Enquire about a reservation• Cancel a reservation• Buy a Book• Receive a Book• Report of Books on Loan2. The schema must be consistent and be shown to work using examples3. Schema need to be annotated so that the Z statements are clearly expressed in plainlanguage4. Write three (3) non-trivial predicate statements about your system; explain them and showthat they are true
