What is the difference between a base entity type and a weak entity type?

QUESTION:

“What is the difference between a base entity type and a weak entity type”?

SOLUTION:

A base entity type is one where each entity has an independent existence (i.e., each entity is unique). A weak entity type is one where each entity does not have independent existence (duplicate entities may exist). A weak entity type is shown to make it clear that the entity type does not have a unique identifier.
