Network Quizzes & Trivia

A Stitched Network is a fully switched network is a computer network that uses only network switches rather than network hubs on Ethernet local area networks. They need switches, which allow for a dedicated connection to each workstation. A switch allows for many conversations to occur simultaneously. Having covered chapter one on introduction to switched networks you are now capable of answering the questions below. Give it a shot and good luck!

    Refer to the exhibit. The PC that is attached to port Fa0/1 is sending a packet that has a destination MAC address of 0050.0fae.229c. Based on the current S1 MAC address table, what will S1 do first when the packet arrives at the switch?
    • A. 

      Forward the data to S2

    • B. 

      Broadcast an ARP request to all S1 ports except port Fa0/1

    • C. 

      Add the MAC address of the PC that is attached to Fa0/1 to the MAC address table

    • D. 

      Broadcast the data to all S1 ports and all S2 ports that have attached end devices

    • E. 

      Broadcast the data to all S1 ports that have attached end devices, except the Fa0/1 port

  • 4. 
    Which switching method describes a switch that transfers a frame as soon as the destination MAC address is read?
    • A. 

      Fragment-free

    • B. 

      Cut-through

    • C. 

      Store-and-forward

    • D. 

      Latency forwarding

  • 5. 
    • A. 

      Layer 2 switches prevent broadcasts.

    • B. 

      Layer 2 switches have multiple collision domains.

    • C. 

      Layer 2 switches route traffic between different networks.

    • D. 

      Layer 2 switches decrease the number of broadcast domains.

    • E. 

      Layer 2 switches can send traffic based on the destination MAC address.

  • 6. 
    Which statement is true about broadcast and collision domains?
    • A. 

      Adding a router to the network will increase the size of the collision domain.

    • B. 

      The size of the collision domain can be reduced by adding hubs to a network.

    • C. 

      The more interfaces a router has the larger the resulting broadcast domain.

    • D. 

      Adding a switch to a network will increase the size of the broadcast domain.

  • 7.

    • B. 

      Call routing

    • C. 

      IT management interface

    • D. 

      Video conferencing

  • 8. 
    Which option correctly describes a switching method?
    • A. 

      Cut-through: makes a forwarding decision after receiving the entire frame

    • B. 

      Store-and-forward: forwards the frame immediately after examining its destination MAC address

    • C. 

      Cut-through: provides the flexibility to support any mix of Ethernet speeds

    • D. 

      Store-and-forward: ensures that the frame is free of physical and data-link errors

  • 9.
