Page tables can be stored in?

1]L2 cache

2]memory

3]disk

What I think memory is trivial option. There is TLB for page table entries so why to use L2 cache ? and if multilevel Page tables are there then disk can be used.

by memory, I think, they mean the Main memory (RAM). So, it could be the answer.

yes. there are multiple answers memory(RAM) is fine, Disk also can have swapped page table. But for page table do we use L2 cache to store it? I think no because they are cached in TLB. What are your views?
