An underlying relational database model and the database query language SQL are assumed, and methods are presented for responding with appropriate answers to null value responses. This is done by using a knowledge base based on RM/T, an extended relational model. The advantages of this approach are described. To demonstrate the utility of the knowledge base model, a simple knowledge base is constructed. The algorithms that provide additional information when a null answer is returned are detailed
