ID means identifier so its full name is identifier -dependent entity.

Actually the given question is observed clearly which is identifies to the another entity that's why ID-dependent entity is the correct answer.

It should be a weak entity.

ID-dependent entity: entity (child) whose Identifier depends (includes) another identifier.

For example, Building:Apartment -> for describing an apartment you need to include building name and all.

Weak Entity: existence depends on another entity.

Eg: Model: Car.

All Id-dependent entity are weak, and vice-versa is not true.
