Which of the following workstations will be affected when a SINGLE link on a physical bus network fails?
A. The workstation directly connected to the failed link. B. The workstations downstream from the failed link. C. The workstations upstream from the failed link. D. All the workstations on the network.
All the workstations on the network.-a bus topology has a very low fault tolerance. a failure of any node on the network will bring the entire network down.incorrect answers:a: in the star topology, every node is connected to a central distribution device such as a hub or switch. a failure of a link to any node on this network will only affect that node.b, c: the bus topology has no fault tolerance. a single failure in these networks will bring the entire network down.references:david groth and toby skandier, network+ study guide (4th edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2005, pp. 10-11, 12, 52.david groth, network+ study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 11-12, 23.david groth and dan newland, a+ complete study guide (2nd edition), sybex, alameda ca, 2001, pp. 313-314.
