why do we use the class "Student" to call different methods instead of an instance of the class " Student"?

I am a little bit confused about the way we call different methods for the Student class, after creating the db database and create tables, why don't we use "student" table instead of "Student" class to create, select,.... rows in a table? or why don't we write: Student().create() Thanks for your help

Hi Elmira. We use Student().create() because Student is our actual class - students.db is only a database file when we store or class Student named.
