### A known current is generated by the earth ground tester between the earth ground electrode and the

• A.

Grounding point.

• B.

Inner earth stake Y.

• C.

Auxiliary current probe.

• D.

Auxiliary potential probe.

C. Auxiliary current probe.
Explanation
The correct answer is auxiliary current probe. An earth ground tester is used to measure the electrical resistance of the earth ground electrode. In order to generate a known current, an auxiliary current probe is used. This probe is connected to the earth ground electrode and allows the tester to pass a specific amount of current through it. By measuring the voltage drop across the electrode, the tester can determine the resistance of the ground. The auxiliary potential probe, on the other hand, is used to measure the voltage at the grounding point, not to generate a current. The inner earth stake Y is not mentioned in the question and therefore cannot be the correct answer.

### What active test is selected to determine if a network node is connected or responding?

• A.

Packet internetwork groper (PING).

• B.

Traffic generator.

• C.

Route generator.

• D.

Trace route.

A. Packet internetwork groper (PING).
Explanation
The correct answer is Packet internetwork groper (PING). PING is an active test that is used to determine if a network node is connected or responding. It sends a small packet of data to the destination node and waits for a response. If the destination node responds, it means that it is connected and responding. PING is commonly used to troubleshoot network connectivity issues and to measure the round-trip time (RTT) between two nodes.

### What active test is selected to see the path that the packets are traveling and the time it takes the packets to compete the trip?

• A.

Packet internetwork groper (PING).

• B.

Traffic generator.

• C.

Route generator.

• D.

Trace route.

D. Trace route.
Explanation
Trace route is the active test that is selected to see the path that the packets are traveling and the time it takes the packets to complete the trip. This tool is commonly used to identify the route that packets take from the source to the destination, as well as to measure the latency or time delay in the network. By sending a series of packets with increasing time-to-live (TTL) values, trace route can determine the routers or hops that the packets pass through and calculate the round-trip time for each hop. This information helps in troubleshooting network connectivity issues and identifying network bottlenecks.

### When transmitter decibel (dB) power is doubled, it has increased by

• A.

1 dB.

• B.

2 dB.

• C.

3 dB.

• D.

4 dB.

C. 3 dB.
Explanation
When the transmitter decibel (dB) power is doubled, the increase in power is measured in dB. The dB scale is logarithmic, so doubling the power corresponds to an increase of 3 dB. This means that the power is multiplied by a factor of 2, which results in a 3 dB increase.
