Please fill it out as best you can (based on reading about Semantic Web technologies and languages), and leave anything you do not understand blank. Feel free to find any information you need online, e.g. research papers or books. To study the ontology you can use any tool you like, e.g. Protégé, TopBraid Composer SE etc. However, please note that rules of plagiarism apply: do NOT copy any text or answers from anybody else, these have to be your own answers! For the first part of the questions, download the following ontology file and use it to answer the question: http://www.ida.liu.se/~evabl45/people.owl
