Relationships & Navigation Properties in EF Core

In relational databases, it is a healthy practice to divide the data between related tables. For Example, the employee working in a particular department. We do not store both the information in the same table but divide them into Employee & Department table. When we divide tables, we also need to specify the relationships between them. For example, if you are looking for an employee working in a particular department, then you need to specify the relationship between employees and the department table. The relationship between these tables is defined using the foreign keys. We then use these relationships to query the database to get the meaningful data.
