Correct answers – option A, B and C
A computer must have an IP address every time it connects to a home network router, a Wi-Fi hotspot and when it connects with another using TCP.

IP address is the internet protocol address which refers to a unique number that gets linked to all online activities. The internet protocol is responsible for addressing, delivering and routing online request. It attaches an “electronic return address” to all online requests.

The address it uses is the IP address for your connection. IP address is not specific for each computer. The IP address on your laptop at home, at the office and at the restaurant is never the same. Basically, you do not own an IP address. It is the address for your connection.
