AWS Certified Data Analytics – Specialty DAS-C01 – Question52

A company has 1 million scanned documents stored as image files in Amazon S3. The documents contain typewritten application forms with information including the applicant first name, applicant last name, application date, application type, and application text. The company has developed a machine learning algorithm to extract the metadata values from the scanned documents. The company wants to allow internal data analysts to analyze and find applications using the applicant name, application date, or application text. The original images should also be downloadable. Cost control is secondary to query performance.
Which solution organizes the images and metadata to drive insights while meeting the requirements?

A.
For each image, use object tags to add the metadata. Use Amazon S3 Select to retrieve the files based on the applicant name and application date.
B. Index the metadata and the Amazon S3 location of the image file in Amazon Elasticsearch Service. Allow the data analysts to use Kibana to submit queries to the Elasticsearch cluster.
C. Store the metadata and the Amazon S3 location of the image file in an Amazon Redshift table. Allow the data analysts to run ad-hoc queries on the table.
D. Store the metadata and the Amazon S3 location of the image files in an Apache Parquet file in Amazon S3, and define a table in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. Allow data analysts to use Amazon Athena to submit custom queries.
