Your question is unclear.
What are you trying to do?
Where did you find this expression?
Or are you simply reading an introduction to relational databases?

I thought so, too...

But this time there was even too little information to be sure that it really was a homework question?

I remember a command line front-end for a time share system I worked on in the 80-ies.

It had a nice script where one could quickly check the value of different variables. Let's say, you write:
WHATIS DATE
It would reply:
DATE is 1984-07-16

In the script, I found a couple of special situations.

WHATIS ANSWER would immediately reply:
"The answer is fourty-two!!!"
If you'd write WHATIS QUESTION it would go into a procrastination:
...That's tricky, let me think... (wait 5 minutes - or until user hits enter)
...Need some more time... (wait 10 minutes)
...Hmmm. I'll soon find it... (wait 3000 minutes)
No, I can't think if you keep interrupting me all the time!

A latency in you of asking questions guaranteed to gum up the works?

I like that kind of question.

At least...

to gum up homeworks. :)
We must have a lot of interesting discussions on TR, since we've become the go-to address for people, too lazy to look further the "I'm feeling lucky"-button in google.

They could take it one step further, like the Russian search engine yandex. On the "meditative" search form at http://zen.yandex.ru/ there is no text field. You'll just get the results of a random search somebody else has performed lately!

A family tree is one...
Breeding statitistics of the less spotted grebe.
A telephone directory.

I'd rethink your cover if I was you, you are going to get found out quick as a DBA

Now I know!

I was thinking: "Related to what?"

But then I realized. We're looking for a collection of information related to ms Access.

MS office help pages is one collection.
Chapter 1.0.1 in the questioner's textbook is another.
