    1. Refer to the exhibit. A student working in the lab selects a cable that is wired as shown. Which connection types can successfully be made with this cable? (Choose two.)

    • A.

      Connecting a PC to a router's console port

    • B.

      Connecting two routers together via their fast ethernet ports

    • C.

      Connecting two switches together at gigabit speeds

    • D.

      Connecting a PC to a switch at Gigabit Ethernet speeds

    • E.

      Connecting two devices with the same interface type at Fast Ethernet speeds

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Connecting two routers together via their fast ethernet ports
    E. Connecting two devices with the same interface type at Fast Ethernet speeds
    Explanation
    The cable shown in the exhibit is a crossover cable, which is used to connect two devices of the same type (e.g., two routers or two switches) directly together. This type of connection is possible at Fast Ethernet speeds. Additionally, the cable can also be used to connect a PC to a router's console port, allowing for configuration and management of the router. Therefore, the two connection types that can successfully be made with this cable are connecting two routers together via their fast ethernet ports and connecting two devices with the same interface type at Fast Ethernet speeds.

    3. What makes fiber preferable to copper cabling for interconnecting buildings? (Choose three.)

    • A.

      Greater distances per cable run

    • B.

      Lower installation cost

    • C.

      Limited susceptibility to EMI/RFI

    • D.

      Durable connections

    • E.

      Greater bandwidth potential

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Greater distances per cable run
    C. Limited susceptibility to EMI/RFI
    Explanation
    Fiber is preferable to copper cabling for interconnecting buildings because it allows for greater distances per cable run, meaning that longer distances can be covered without the need for additional equipment or signal boosters. Additionally, fiber has limited susceptibility to EMI/RFI (electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference), which can degrade the quality of signals transmitted over copper cables. This makes fiber more reliable and less prone to signal degradation.

    5. What does the term "attenuation" mean in data communication?

    • A.

      Loss of signal strength as distance increases

    • B.

      Time for a signal to reach its destination

    • C.

      Leakage of signals from one cable pair to another

    • D.

      Strengthening of a signal by a networking device

    Correct Answer
    A. Loss of signal strength as distance increases
    Explanation
    Attenuation refers to the gradual decrease in signal strength as it travels over a distance in data communication. This can occur due to various factors such as resistance, interference, and impedance mismatch. As the signal travels farther, it experiences more resistance and interference, causing its strength to diminish. Therefore, the correct answer is "loss of signal strength as distance increases."

    6. How many host addresses may be assigned on each subnetwork when using the 130.68.0.0 network address with a subnet mask of 255.255.248.0?

    • A.

      30

    • B.

      256

    • C.

      2046

    • D.

      2048

    • E.

      4094

    Correct Answer
    C. 2046
    Explanation
    When using the subnet mask 255.255.248.0, it means that 13 bits are used for the network portion and 11 bits are used for the host portion. The formula to calculate the number of host addresses is 2^n - 2, where n is the number of bits in the host portion. So in this case, 2^11 - 2 equals 2046. Therefore, there may be 2046 host addresses assigned on each subnetwork when using the given network address and subnet mask.

    • B.

      255.255.255.192

    • C.

      255.255.255.224

    • D.

      255.255.255.240

    • E.

      255.255.255.248

    Correct Answer
    C. 255.255.255.224
    Explanation
    The subnet mask 255.255.255.224 would provide the needed hosts and leave the fewest unused addresses in each subnet. This subnet mask allows for a maximum of 30 hosts per subnet, which is more than enough for the required 27 hosts. It also leaves only 2 unused addresses in each subnet, minimizing wastage of IP addresses.

    12. Refer to the exhibit. Based on the IP configuration shown, what would be the result of Host A and Host B attempting to communicate outside the network segment?

    • A.

      Both host A and B would be successful

    • B.

      Host A would be successful, host B would fail

    • C.

      Host B would be successful, host A would fail

    • D.

      Both Host A and B would fail

    Correct Answer
    C. Host B would be successful, host A would fail
    Explanation
    Based on the IP configuration shown in the exhibit, Host A has an IP address of 192.168.1.10 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, while Host B has an IP address of 192.168.2.10 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The subnet masks indicate that Host A and Host B are on different network segments, as the subnet masks define the network portion of the IP address. Therefore, Host A and Host B would not be able to communicate directly with each other outside of their respective network segments. Host B would be successful in communicating within its own network segment, but Host A would fail in communicating outside of its network segment.

    C. They segment broadcast domains.
    D. They interconnect different network technologies.
    E. Each router interface requires a separate network or subnet.
    Explanation
    Routers play a crucial role in network communication. Firstly, they segment broadcast domains, which means they divide a network into smaller parts, reducing the impact of broadcast traffic on the entire network. Secondly, routers interconnect different network technologies, allowing communication between networks that use different protocols or technologies. Finally, each interface on a router requires a separate network or subnet, as routers need to have unique IP addresses on each network they connect to.
