I am confused with the lossy decomposition and natural join. Natural join(with common attribute): only respective common attribute for the resultant table is formed. Lossy: Natural join on tables with common attribute results formation of spurious table. the problem is, both have common attribute but showing 2 different solutions.one is showing original tuple other a spurious tuple.

Please Help.
