Answer: Option C

Solution(By Examveda Team)

MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS).
In a relational database, data is stored in tables, with relationships defined between these tables. SQL (Structured Query Language) is used to manage and query data in relational databases like MySQL.
Option A, Object-oriented, is incorrect because MySQL follows the relational model, not the object-oriented model.
Option B, Hierarchical, is incorrect because MySQL is not based on a hierarchical model, where data is organized in a tree-like structure.
Option D, Network, is incorrect because MySQL is not based on a network model, where data is represented by interconnected records.
