I am working a Online exam project(MCQ). There are 200 questions. I created 5 pages to store these questions. Each page has 40 questions. I'm using datalist to show the question. Which method will be good to store answer? Session ,cookie or i should insert it into db?

A database would be you best bet with that many questions. Just create a column that has a unique identifier and each question set(exam) can be referenced by that.

Have a look at CP Knowledge Base. There are tons of examples:

Thank you for the mentioning.

On a heavy push for that 100k?
