which of the following files would be affected?

Windows Virtual machine use a page file and Linux Virtual Machine use a swap partition for virtual memory. When determining the appropriate size for these, which of the following files would be affected?

A.
the .vswp file

B.
the .vmdk file

C.
the -flat.vmdk file

D.
the Service Console swap partition

Explanation:
Explanation/Reference
The -flat.vmdk file. This is the default large virtual disk data file that is created when you add a virtual hard drive to your VM that is not an RDM. When using thick disks, this file will be approximately the same size as what you specify when you create your virtual hard drive. Since both the Windows page file and Linux swap partition are located on the virtual disk, the -flat.vmdk file will be affected.
