    Which two statements about the functions of a hub are accurate? (Choose two.) (Source: Understanding the Challenges of Shared LANs)
    • A. 

      A hub extends an Ethernet LAN.

    • B. 

      A hub reduces the size of a collision domain

    • C. 

      Adding a hub eliminates the need for users on a network segment to compete for the same bandwidth.

    • D. 

      A hub is a data link layer device.

    • E.

  • 2. 
    Which three statements best describe collisions? (Choose three.) (Source: Understanding the Challenges of Shared LANs)
    • A.

    • B. 

      Larger segments are less likely to have collisions.

    • C. 

      In a collision, the frames are destroyed, and each station in the segment begins a random timer that must be completed before attempting to retransmit the data.
