SQLis a sub-language because it doesn't containing branching and looping structure.

So we have to go for Pl/Sql thats a programming language more correctly a programmable version of SQL.

SQL is a DSL (Data Sub Language), which is really a combination of two languages.
They are the Data Definition Language (DDL) and the Data Manipulation Language (DML).

Schema changes are part of the DDL and data changes are part of the DML. So, we will consider both parts of the DSL in this discussion of SQL.

A database management system (DBMS) , sometimes just called a database manager, is a program that lets one or more computer users create and access data in a database.

Some DBMS examples include MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft Access, SQL Server, FileMaker, Oracle, RDBMS, dBASE, Clipper, and FoxPro. Since there are so many database management systems available.

So that answer is D.

A data Sublanguage is a computer language used to define or manipulate the structure of a relational database management system (DBMS) e.g QBE, SQL.

Here, SQL commands can be divided into two main sublanguages DDL & DML.

Nobody seems to know the reason for SQL being a sub-language.
