    What is the Internet?

    • A.

      A software program installed on a computer

    • B.

      An electronic device for printing documents

    • C.

      A worldwide collection of computers connected to each other

    • D.

      A power backup source

    Correct Answer
    C. A worldwide collection of computers connected to each other
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A worldwide collection of computers connected to each other." The Internet refers to a global network of interconnected computers and devices that communicate with each other using standardized protocols. It allows for the sharing of information, communication, and access to various services and resources. This definition accurately describes the Internet as a network of computers that are connected to each other on a global scale.

    • B.

      Offline

    • C.

      Stand by

    • D.

      Logged off

    Correct Answer
    A. Online
    Explanation
    A computer that is connected to the Internet is described as being "online". This means that it is actively connected to the network and able to access and transmit data over the Internet. Being online allows the user to browse websites, send emails, download files, and perform various online activities.

    Computer Network is

    • A.

      Collection of hardware components and computers

    • B.

      Interconnected by communication channels

    • C.

      Sharing of resources and information

    • D.

      All

    Correct Answer
    D. All
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All" because a computer network is indeed a collection of hardware components and computers that are interconnected by communication channels for the purpose of sharing resources and information. This means that all the options mentioned in the question are true and contribute to the definition of a computer network.

    Which two statements describe the BIDs used in a spanning tree topology? (Choose two.)

    • A.

      They are sent out by the root bridge only after the inferior BPDUs are sent.

    • B.

      They consist of a bridge priority and MAC address.

    • C.

      Only the root bridge will send out a BID.

    • D.

      They are used by the switches in a spanning tree topology to elect the root bridge.

    • E.

      The switch with the fastest processor will have the lowest BID.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. They consist of a bridge priority and MAC address.
    D. They are used by the switches in a spanning tree topology to elect the root bridge.
    Explanation
    The BIDs (Bridge IDs) used in a spanning tree topology consist of a bridge priority and MAC address. This information is used by the switches in the topology to elect the root bridge. The bridge priority determines the likelihood of a switch becoming the root bridge, with lower values being preferred. The MAC address is used as a tiebreaker if two switches have the same bridge priority. Therefore, the BIDs play a crucial role in determining the root bridge and establishing the spanning tree topology.

    Which of the following network topologies contains a backbone which runs the length of the network?

    • A.

      Star

    • B.

      Tree

    • C.

      Bus

    • D.

      Ring

    Correct Answer
    C. Bus
    Explanation
    A bus network topology contains a backbone that runs the length of the network. In this topology, all devices are connected to a single cable, called the backbone or bus. Each device in the network can transmit data onto the bus, and all devices on the network can receive that data. The backbone acts as a central communication line, connecting all devices together.
