QUESTION 1 - (Topic 1)
You need to configure the app to meet the load time requirements.
What should you do?

A. Set the value of the CacheSize to 0.
B. Set the value of the CacheMode property to BitmapCache.
C. Set the value of the NavigationCacheMode property to Enabled.
D. Set the value of the NavigationCacheMode property to Disabled.

Answer: C

Explanation:
Scenario: You must optimize the app using the following guidelines:
? You must minimize the time it takes to display content when an item on the timeline is selected.
? The app must respect memory and resource constraints for all devices.
You use the NavigationCacheMode property to specify whether a new instance of the page is created for each visit to the page or if a previously constructed instance of the page that has been saved in the cache is used for each visit.
The default value for the NavigationCacheMode property is Disabled. Set the
NavigationCacheMode property to Enabled or Required when a new instance of the page is not essential for each visit. By using a cached instance of the page, you can improve the performance of your application and reduce the load on your server.

QUESTION 2 - (Topic 1)
Note: This question is part of a series of questions that present the same scenario. Each
question in the series contains n unique solution. Determine whether the solution meets the stated goals.
You need to implement the appropriate XAML layout (or the Timeline app.
Solution: You create an instance of a RelativePanel class.
Does this meet the goal?

A. Yes
B. No

Answer: A

Explanation: RelativePanel lets you layout UI elements by specifying where they go in relation to other elements and in relation to the panel. By default, an element is positioned in the upper left corner of the panel.

QUESTION 3 - (Topic 1)
You need to design the navigation tor the timeline.
What navigation should you use?

A. hierarchy
B. peer
C. hub
D. master/details

Answer: A

Explanation:
From scenario:
Here we can use a hierarchy with each parent node having only one single child node.
Hierarchical structures are good for organizing complex content that spans lots of pages or when pages should be viewed in a particular order. The downside is that hierarchical pages introduce some navigation overhead: the deeper the structure, the more clicks it takes for users to get from page to page.
We recommend a hiearchical structure when:
You expect the user to traverse the pages in a specific order. Arrange the hierarchy to
enforce that order.
There is a clear parent-child relationship between one of the pages and the other pages in the group.
There are more than 7 pages in the group.
When there are more than 7 pages in the group, it might be difficult for users to understand how the pages are unique or to understand their current location within the group. If you don't think that's an issue for your app, go ahead and make the pages peers
