The network will collapse-a token ring has a very low fault tolerance and a failure in the cable will bring the entire network down.incorrect answers:a: it will not become a token bus network unless terminators are attached to either end of the cable.b, c: a token ring network has no fault tolerance. a single failure in this network 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.
