ANSWER: E

The 'F' Fact table is partitioned on request and is created during data loads. The 'E' Fact table of the InfoCube is created with the number of partitions specified in the partitioning range. Once the data is loaded to the cube, partitioning based in the Time characteristic is not possible without removing the data. PSA table partitions can contain more than one request.
