A developer is creating an enhancement to an application that will allow people to be related to their employer. Which data model provides the simplest solution to meet the requirements?
1. Create a Lookup relationship to indicate that a person has an employer
2. create Master-detail relationship to indicate that a person has an employer

You should create a look up.
In a master detail all the persons should have an employer.

Hi Rajesh! My option is the first one.

If the relationship between the employer and the person may or may not exist, a model must be defined that allows the objects to be related but they exist separately
