A

Assembly metadata is stored in Manifest. Manifest contains all the metadata needed to do the following things
* Version of assembly
* Security identity
* Scope of the assembly
* Resolve references to resources and classes.
* The assembly manifest can be stored in either a PE file (an .exe or .dll) with Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) code or in a stand-alone PE file that contains only assembly manifest information.
