Correct. v1 supports GRS/RA-GRS but question was about least cost. Least cost is ZRS which is only supported for v2 and premium file/block storage. Source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-redundancy#supported-storage-account-types

Microsoft MUST remove all the questions for the services they have planned deprecation. It make no sense to confuse new people between Storage V1 vs V2 or confuse us between Basic PublicIP vs Standard PublicIP.

Actually the question says, A ZONE. That mean its not ALL OR SOME ZONE fail. So yeah, ZRS is suitable over GRS.

ZRS replicates data into multiple "Zones". So if your primary zone fails then the other two or more zones are available and will takeover the failed zone for you and your server will stay alive. So ZRS is great for zone failure. GRS replicated your data into different geography. For example, if you are in USA you will most likley be using NA geography. And if you use GRS, your data will be replicated to a secondary gregraphy such as EU, Asia, etc. So with GRS, even if the entire NA Azure servers failes and lose all your data, you will still have backed up data in a different geography.

The answer is upgrading to gen 2 but say nothing about changing LRS to ZRS so I think D should be the answer

Answer is correct, and this is why : General-purpose v2 storage accounts support the latest Azure Storage features and incorporate all of the functionality of general-purpose v1 and Blob storage accounts. General-purpose v2 accounts are recommended for most storage scenarios. General-purpose v2 accounts deliver the lowest per-gigabyte capacity prices for Azure Storage, as well as industry-competitive transaction prices. General-purpose v2 accounts support default account access tiers of hot or cool and blob level tiering between hot, cool, or archive. Upgrading to a general-purpose v2 storage account from your general-purpose v1 or Blob storage accounts is straightforward. You can upgrade using the Azure portal, PowerShell, or Azure CLI. There is no downtime or risk of data loss associated with upgrading to a general-purpose v2 storage account. The account upgrade happens via a simple Azure Resource Manager operation that changes the account type. Hope this helps

Nice pointing out. Also just to avoid any confusion the same doesn't apply to switching from Standard V2 to any of the Premium tiers. Doing such a switch requires a NEW storage account to be created and data to be copied over after. Reference : Microsoft own AZ104 certified instructor.

Selected Answer: C
To protect data against a zone failure, you would typically use Zone-Redundant Storage (ZRS). However, General-Purpose v1 (GPv1) storage accounts do not support ZRS. To take advantage of ZRS, you should use General-Purpose v2 (GPv2) storage accounts. After upgrading to GPv2, you can then modify the replication settings to use ZRS. So, the correct first step would be: C. Upgrade the account to general-purpose v2. Once you've upgraded to GPv2, you can modify the Replication setting to use ZRS.
