Provisioned IOPS Costs: you are charged for the IOPS and storage whether or not you use them in a given
month.

A.
FALSE

B.
TRUE

Explanation:
EBS Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) Volumes
Volume storage for EBS Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes is charged by the amount you provision in GB
per month, until you release the storage. With Provisioned IOPS SSD (io1) volumes, you are also charged by
the amount you provision in IOPS (input/output operations per second) multiplied by the percentage of days you
provision for the month. For example, if you provision a volume with 1000 IOPS, and keep this volume for 15
days in a 30 day month, then in a Region that charges $0.10 per provisioned IOPS-month, you would be
charged $50 for the IOPS that you provision ($0.10 per provisioned IOPS-month * 1000 IOPS provisioned * 15
days/30). You will be charged for the IOPS provisioned on a volume even when the volume is detached from an
instance.
