Question 39


Answer E is correct. If the sole purpose of the storage of XML data is to retrieve the same data later, the best and most effective data type is the nvarchar type. The column should also be sized using max to achieve the most flexibility with the storage. It may be tempting to use the XML type, but doing so is not necessary in this situation.
