I think B, C.
I dont know whether a POST request is faster than a GET request. In the aspect of the limitation, since GET can only send 255 words data, while POST can send, in theory, unlimited data, POST should be slower in this sense.
D is incorrect because only GET requests use query string.

Since POST request data can be sent in multipart, for example, the form data, and the upload file information, and thus, they are sent in 2 different content blocks to the server.

I forgot the exact terminology
but what happens is the POST data(stream data) sits in a sperate block
in the response header.
I think thats what the 'content' in the question meant
Thanks

Well, I'll work backwards; A. is wrong since its not actually compared to any other request type. E.g. POST is slower on average than a GET (which is what the other posters are trying to say) but I think a HEAD request will beat them all.
D. is wrong because you can't get the parameters out of the query string (I don't think they are there, they are in a separate block, for POST requests).
So by default, B. and C. must be correct answers.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
