linq query to get highest id with datetime query

I need a linq query that returns a QuestionAnswer object with the datetimevalue given the previousAttemptID

Here is database table called "QuestionAnswers"


ID  (int)
previousAttemptID  (int)
userID (int)
questionID (int)
anwerID (int)
dateAnswered (datetime)



So something like



QuestionAnswer = db.QuestionAnswers.Where(r => r.previousAttemptID == previousAttemptID)  // then get the record with the max datetime stampe (field dateAnswered)

EDIT: As you want the max datetime you'll need to order by DESC

QuestionAnswer = db.QuestionAnswers.Where(r => r.previousAttemptID == previousAttemptID).OrderByDescending(dateAnswered).First()
