Q: "What is a fully managed platform on Azure?"
A: (correct): "Servers, network, storage and more is all managed by Azure. You focus on your business value and logic."
A: (incorrect): "Every part of your Azure services are looked after by Microsoft. This means you only have to worry about your application development."
Why is the second answer incorrect? The two answers above don’t seem that different to me and the answer description provided adds no value:
"A managed platform means the provider manages the infrastructure layer, such as VMs, disks, networks and more. You only have to focus on the core functionality of your application. Managed services on Azure are available on all subscription types and comes at no extra cost. "
I have literally just finished the chapter and although they seem similar on the face of it, however from what I recal the narrator had mentioned a number of times including the previous chapters that the correct answer is you focus on your business value and logic. That’s my inital point.
The second more important point is that app development is only a small part of a decision to use a fully managed service. This is why they talk about business value and logic. To go fully managed it is generally done for cost savings or convience and realistically that type of decision is made at a managment level who may again not being doing much development but instead be focused on driving growth.
That’s my thoughts on it and hope it help.

I’m confused… according to the narrator in chp 4.4: a fully managed platform is where Microsoft Servers, network, storage and more is all managed by Azure. You just focus on your business value and logic. If that is the case, why when you select that answer it is wrong?
the narrator in 4.4 contradicts the answer.. check the narrator and then check this https://imgur.com/a/m6KQycl
I think the question and the answer needs to be reviewed again. Based on what was provided in the course, the correct answer should be the one with focus on business value and logic.
The question should what are the "characteristics" of a fully managed platform on Azure? Then the "Every part of your Azure services are looked after by Microsoft. This means you only have to worry about your application development." would make more sense.
Agree. I got this one wrong too. They seem to be very similar.
