    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    C. To replace IPv4 because the ammount of IP address in IPv4 is almost exhausted. 
    Explanation
    IPv6 was developed to replace IPv4 because the amount of IP addresses in IPv4 is almost exhausted. IPv4 uses a 32-bit address format, which allows for about 4.3 billion unique IP addresses. However, with the growth of the internet and the increasing number of devices connected to it, the number of available IPv4 addresses is running out. IPv6, on the other hand, uses a 128-bit address format, which provides an exponentially larger number of unique IP addresses, ensuring that there will be enough addresses for future growth and connectivity needs.

    Explanation
    A domain name is a text-based name that corresponds to the IP address of a computer/server that hosts a website. It is used to easily identify and access websites on the internet. Unlike IP addresses, which consist of a series of numbers, domain names are more user-friendly and memorable. When a user enters a domain name in a web browser, the domain name system (DNS) translates it into the corresponding IP address, allowing the user to access the desired website.
