Can someone tell me the difference between V$ARCHIVED_LOG and V$LOG_HISTORY? They seem to contain different information but I am not sure the differences are.

Also, I've got this question from my friend:

Why would you query V$ARCHIVED_LOG?

A) To view the current Archive log
B) To display archives that have been backed up

Ans: B

So this means V$ARCHIVED_LOG ONLY contains archived logs that have been backed up?
