The global assembly cache stores assemblies specifically designated to be shared by several applications on
the computer.

C: An assembly must have a strong name to be installed in the global assembly cache.
F: There are two ways to install an assembly into the global assembly cache.

Using Microsoft Windows Installer. This could be achieved by a deployment project.
Using the Global Assembly Cache tool (Gacutil.exe).

Option E is not relevent here. If you include the assembly using Application config file , it wont get installed in GAC.
