Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which topology requires a multipoint connection? 

    • A.

      Mesh

    • B.

      Star

    • C.

      Bus

    • D.

      Ring

    Correct Answer
    A. Mesh
    Explanation
    A mesh topology requires a multipoint connection because in a mesh network, each device is connected to every other device in the network. This means that multiple connections are needed to establish communication between all the devices in the network. In a mesh topology, if one connection fails, there are alternative paths available for data transmission, ensuring reliability and redundancy.

    WAN Stands for

    • A.

      World Area Network

    • B.

      Web Area Network

    • C.

      Wide Area Network

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    C. Wide Area Network
    Explanation
    WAN stands for Wide Area Network. It is a type of computer network that spans a large geographical area, typically connecting multiple local area networks (LANs) across different locations. WANs are used to connect computers and devices over long distances, allowing for communication and data sharing between different sites or branches of an organization. The other options, World Area Network and Web Area Network, do not exist and are not recognized terms in the field of networking. Therefore, the correct answer is Wide Area Network.

  • 3. 

    All computers are connected to central computer is called as

    • A.

      Ring Topology

    • B.

      Star Topology

    • C.

      Mesh Topology

    • D.

      Tree Topology

    Correct Answer
    B. Star Topology
    Explanation
    Star Topology is the correct answer because in this type of network, all computers are connected to a central computer or hub. The central computer acts as a central point of communication, and all the other computers are connected to it. This allows for easy management and troubleshooting, as well as efficient data transmission. Each computer has its own dedicated connection to the central computer, ensuring that if one computer fails or is disconnected, it does not affect the rest of the network.

    Client Server architecture is also called_____________ model.

    • A.

      Request Response

    • B.

      Response Request

    • C.

      Request Request

    • D.

      Response Response

    Correct Answer
    A. Request Response
    Explanation
    Client Server architecture is also called the "Request Response" model because it follows a specific communication pattern. In this model, the client sends a request to the server, and the server responds to the client's request by providing the requested data or performing the requested action. This model is commonly used in networked systems where clients and servers interact to exchange information and perform tasks.

      Browser

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Browser
    Explanation
    In a web-based architecture, users connect to the server through a browser. A browser is a software application that allows users to access and view websites and web pages. It acts as an interface between the user and the server, enabling the user to send requests to the server and receive responses. The browser interprets the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code of the web page and displays the content to the user. Therefore, the correct answer is the browser.

      Network Interface Card

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    C. Network Interface Card
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Network Interface Card." A Network Interface Card (NIC) is a hardware component that allows a computer to connect to a network. It provides the necessary interface between the computer and the network, enabling communication and data transfer. The other options, "Network Internet Card" and "National Internet Card," are not commonly used terms and do not accurately describe the function of a NIC. Therefore, "None of the Above" is also not the correct answer.

    Hub is heart of modern network system.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Hub is the heart of modern network system" is incorrect. In a modern network system, switches and routers are considered the heart as they are responsible for directing network traffic and ensuring efficient communication between devices. Hubs, on the other hand, are outdated and inefficient as they simply broadcast incoming data to all connected devices, leading to network congestion and reduced performance. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    SDLC model used for rapid software development process.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) model used for rapid software development process is the Agile model, not the traditional SDLC model. The Agile model emphasizes iterative and incremental development, allowing for flexibility and quick response to changes in requirements. The traditional SDLC model, on the other hand, follows a linear and sequential approach, which is not suitable for rapid development. Therefore, the given statement is incorrect.
