    Which of the following is true for coaxial cables?

    • A.

      Coaxial cables use copper wires, which are good conductors of electricity.

    • B.

      Coaxial cables provide adequate protection against EMI during data transmissions.

    • C.

      Coaxial cables use light rays instead of electricity to transmit data.

    • D.

      Coaxial cables can be differentiated into two categories, single-mode and multimode.

    Correct Answer
    A. Coaxial cables use copper wires, which are good conductors of electricity.
    Explanation
    Coaxial cables use copper wires, which are good conductors of electricity. This is because copper has low resistance to the flow of electric current, allowing for efficient transmission of signals through the cable. The use of copper wires in coaxial cables helps to minimize signal loss and maintain high-quality transmission.

    Regarding fiber-optic cables, which transmission mode is used for transmitting data over long distances?

    • A.

      Infrared

    • B.

      Radio

    • C.

      Single-mode

    • D.

      Multimode

    Correct Answer
    C. Single-mode
    Explanation
    Single-mode is the correct answer because it is the transmission mode used for transmitting data over long distances in fiber-optic cables. Single-mode cables have a smaller core diameter, allowing for a single beam of light to travel straight down the center of the cable without bouncing off the walls. This minimizes signal loss and allows for longer transmission distances. In contrast, multimode cables have a larger core diameter, which allows multiple beams of light to travel through the cable, but this can cause signal distortion and limits the distance over which data can be transmitted.

    What is the maximum bandwidth that can be supported by fiber optics cable?

    • A.

      1000 Mbps

    • B.

      50 Tbps

    • C.

      10 Gbps

    • D.

      100 Tbps

    Correct Answer
    D. 100 Tbps
    Explanation
    Fiber optics cables offer high-speed data transmission through the use of light signals. With bandwidths ranging from 10 Gbps to an impressive 100 Tbps, these cables enable rapid and reliable communication, making them crucial in modern networks for data-intensive applications, telecommunications, and internet services.

    Media Access Control (MAC) and Logical Link Control (LLC) are two sublayers of _________________.

    • A.

      Session layer

    • B.

      Network layer

    • C.

      Transport layer

    • D.

      Data Link layer

    Correct Answer
    D. Data Link layer
    Explanation
    MAC (Media Access Control) and LLC (Logical Link Control) are two sublayers of the Data Link layer in the OSI model. The Data Link layer is responsible for providing reliable and error-free communication between two directly connected devices. The MAC sublayer handles the addressing and access to the physical media, while the LLC sublayer manages the flow control and error detection of the data being transmitted. Therefore, the correct answer is the Data Link layer.

    Salen Chetty is the network administrator of Vodafone Fiji Ltd. He needs to design the network setup for his company. More than 1650000 hosts will be connected to the network. Which IP addressing class would best meet his requirements?

    • A.

      Class B

    • B.

      Class A

    • C.

      Class C

    • D.

      Class D

    Correct Answer
    B. Class A
    Explanation
    Class A IP addressing would best meet the requirements of Salen Chetty for designing the network setup for Vodafone Fiji Ltd. Class A provides a large range of IP addresses, allowing for more than 16 million hosts to be connected to the network. As there are more than 1,650,000 hosts in this case, Class A would be the most suitable choice. Class B and Class C have smaller ranges, while Class D is reserved for multicast addresses.

    Consider the following statements: Statement A: In Duplex transmission, either node can transmit while the other can receive data.Statement B: In half-duplex transmission, both nodes can transmit as well as receive data at the same time. Which of the following is true concerning the above statements?

    • A.

      Both statements, A and B, are false.

    • B.

      Statement A is false, and statement B is true.

    • C.

      Both statements, A and B, are true.

    • D.

      Statement A is true, and statement B is false.

    Correct Answer
    D. Statement A is true, and statement B is false.
    Explanation
    Statement A is true because in duplex transmission, one node can transmit data while the other node receives data. However, statement B is false because in half-duplex transmission, only one node can transmit data at a time while the other node is in a receiving mode. Both nodes cannot transmit and receive data simultaneously in half-duplex transmission.
