Which of the following best explains why you wouldassign a Social Security number field as a text field?The field will not be manipulated mathematicallyThis is the default data type for most DBMS table fieldsThe field is too long to define as a numerical fieldYou plan to use this field as a primary key, which must therefore be a text field14.One purpose of a data manipulation language is to:A)Create data fieldsB)Define the record structureC)Create queries on the dataD)all of these
