How much did you learn from taking this Amazon S3 quiz?
I have learn lot of things from this quiz. Like pricing which I never focus on it.
AWS S3 is constantly changing, as well as being integrated with other AWS services (Kinesis, Aurora), so it's good to stay up to date on the new things being added. 
I need to keep up with some of the encryption capabilities. Changing quickly. 
I learned more about S3 where i was not that much familiar about the 3 pricing strategy, encryption, data transfer etc.
I think question 7 is dubious. How about a case where there are frequent changes of versions of file? The metadata will be bigger, right?
Amazon S3 has how many pricing components?  I said 4 (and got it wrong), but your answer, 3, only included request pricing, storage pricing, and transfer pricing.  What about transfer acceleration pricing? It's an optional component, but a component none the less.

Does anyone know what this answer would probably be on an official AWS exam?
