Question 28


Answer A is correct. The data in partitioned tables and indexes is horizontally divided into units that can be spread across more than one filegroup in a database. Partitioning can make large tables and indexes more manageable and scalable. Vertically dividing a table by columns would not help when the problem is number of rows. Vertical filtering helps to divide tables that have too many columns.
