  • B. QueryString
  • C. ViewState
  • D. Cookies


A. Incorrect: localStorage is HTML5 and is not available in all browsers.
B. Correct: Query string information is available across all browsers and is usable on both the client and server.
C. Incorrect: Although ViewState is available in a form field on the page, it is en­crypted and cannot be used on the client side. It is also not used by many ASP.NET MVC 4 constructs.
