Answer: 

This is a typical .Net interview question which is asked to understand if you know how to create deployment packages. When you are done with your application you would like to give your end user a setup package rather than the source code.

The short answer which the interviewer is expecting is that we can use the Visual studio deployment package project. Now the long answer just in case the interviewer gets in to details. So lets understand step by step of how to create a deployment package.
