Database anomalies, are really just unmatched or missing information caused by limitations or flaws within a given database.  Databases are designed to collect data and sort or present it in specific ways to the end user.  Entering or deleting information, be it an update or a new record can cause issues if the database is limited or has ‘bugs’. 

Modification anomalies or Update anomalies are data inconsistencies that resulted from data redundancy or partial update.  The Problems resulting from data redundancy in database table are known as update anomalies. If a modification is not carried out on all the relevant rows, the database will become inconsistent. So any database insertion, deletion or modification that leaves the database in an inconsistent state is said to have caused an update anomaly.

Insertion anomalies are issues that come about when you are inserting information into the database for the first time.  To insert the information into the table, we must enter the correct details so that they are consistent with the values for the other rows.  Missing or incorrectly formatted entries are two of the more common insertion errors.  Most developers acknowledge that this will happen and build in error codes that tell you exactly what went wrong.

Deletion anomalies are obviously about issues with data being deleted, either when attempting to delete and being stopped by an error or by the unseen drop off of data.  If we delete a row from the table that represents the last piece of data, the details about that piece are also lost from the Database. These are the least likely to be caught or to stop you from proceeding.  Because many deletion errors go unnoticed for extended periods of time, they could be the most costly in terms of recovery.

Database anomalies are a fact; we will all face them in one form or another in life.  The importance of backing up, storing offsite and data consistency checks come into full focus when you consider what could be lost.

Database Anomalies
Database anomalies are the problems in relations that occur due to redundancy in the relations. These anomalies affect the process of inserting, deleting and modifying data in the relations. Some important data may be lost if a elations is updated that contains database anomalies. It is important to remove these anomalies in order to perform different processing on the relations without any problem.

Types of Anomalies.Different types of database anomalies are as follows:
Insertion Anomaly.The insertion anomaly occurs when a new record is inserted in the relation. In this anomaly, the user cannot insert a fact about an entity until he has an additional fact about another entity.

Deletion Anomaly.The deletion anomaly occurs when a record is deleted from the relation. In this anomaly, the deletion of facts about an entity automatically deleted the fact of another entity.Modification Anomaly.The modification anomaly occurs when the record is updated in the relation. In this anomaly, the modification in the value of specific attribute requires modification in all records in which that value occurs.

Tables that have redundant data have problems known as anomalies.So data redundancy is a cause of an anomaly.

Redundancy is the duplication of the data.

There are 3 types of anomalies.

Insert Anomaly:When you insert a record without having it stored on the related record.

Delete Anomaly:When you delete some information and lose valuable related information at the same time.

Update Anomaly: Any change made to your data will require you to scan all records to make the changes multiple time.

A database anomaly is a record in the database that contains data not quite conforming to the intent of the database design. Data can be missing, inconsistent with itself or other data records, ambiguous, or just wrong (incorrect by the measure of objective truth).

An example of a database containing many anomalies is the BlurtIt question database. The idea is that it contain well-formed questions stated in a clear way, with associated answers stated in a clear way. It should be searchable, which means the questions and answers need to be spelled and punctuated correctly. The questions should be sensible (have some grounding in some sort of reality), as should the answers.

An example of a record of questionable quality is this one. The ambiguous word in the question gives rise to one interpretation. Another interpretation would disambiguate the word "starts" as "states", rather than "stars". Either way, the "union" is also ambiguous. Someone searching for an answer as to the number of stars or states might have difficulty locating this record.

You can read through the list of questions asked each day and find many that have questionable spelling and punctuation and word usage, or are sufficiently incomplete that they cannot be answered sensibly.

These Anamalies is affected by the Insertion Deletion and Modification
Insertion= the  new record is inserted in the Anomalies class the Insertion is use.
Deletion= When the record is Deleted the Delete use the Automaticaly Delete the record.
Modification=

Database anomalies are the problems occured in relation due to redundancy or occured.
The are three different types of anomalies genarally occured.
Insertion anomly: This happens when we insert the data in the relation .
Deletion anomly:this happens if we delete the data from the relation.
Modification anomly: After modification there will some occured happens.
