The network will collapse.-a bus topology has a very low fault tolerance. it requires terminators at either end of the cable to absorb electronic signals so that they are not reflected back on the media. a failure in the cable will bring the entire network down.incorrect answers:a, 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.
