The interest in studies of neutrino-nucleus interactions goes beyond the study of the intrinsic properties of the neutrino extending to a variety of topics in astro-, nuclear and hadronic physics. We report in this paper the results of the calculations of the cross sections of inelastic neutrino-nucleus scattering off Cd-116, focusing on the incoherent neutral-current and charged-current processes, at energies typical of supernova neutrinos. The required nuclear wave functions for the participant initial and final states are constructed using the quasiparticle random-phase approximation in its charge-conserving mode and charge-changing mode. The response of Cd-116 to supernova neutrinos and antineutrinos is computed by folding the computed cross sections with the assumed Fermi-Dirac distribution of the neutrino energies.
