As I known, WP has 3 types of resolution like 480 × 800, 768 × 1280 and 720 × 1280.
WP 8 phones can have either of the two aspect ratios – 15:9 or 16:9, hence it is important to take care of screen resolutions during the design of the application.

Can any one suggest me the way to solve this problem?

Create one xnb file for each resolution? (background, background-hd, background-wga ... )
or create a only xnb for fixed one resolution then scale it?

You choose a design resolution, design everything around that, and let the framework handle the scaling and letterboxing. I recommend targeting the maximum resolution you can support, but know the limitations of supporting such resolutions. The size of your asset payload will increase nearly linearly with your resolution decision.
