    Which three statements characterize UDP? (Choose three.)

    • A.

      UDP provides connectionless, fast transport of data at Layer 4.

    • B.

      UDP provides connection-oriented, fast transport of data at Layer 3.

    • C.

      UDP relies on application layer protocols for error detection.

    • D.

      UDP works well when an application does not need to guarantee delivery of data.

    • E.

      UDP relies on IP for error detection and recovery.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. UDP provides connectionless, fast transport of data at Layer 4.
    C. UDP relies on application layer protocols for error detection.
    D. UDP works well when an application does not need to guarantee delivery of data.
    Explanation
    UDP is a protocol that operates at Layer 4 of the OSI model. It provides a connectionless and fast transport of data, meaning that it does not establish a formal connection before transmitting data and does not guarantee delivery of data. UDP relies on application layer protocols for error detection, as it does not have built-in error checking mechanisms. Therefore, it works well for applications that do not require reliable delivery of data, such as streaming media or real-time communication.

    • E.

      Network

    Correct Answer
    E. Network
    Explanation
    The network layer of the OSI model is responsible for logical addressing. This means that it assigns unique addresses to devices on a network, allowing them to communicate with each other. Logical addresses, such as IP addresses, are used to identify the source and destination of data packets. The network layer also determines the best path for data transmission and handles routing protocols. Therefore, the network layer is the correct answer for this question.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which device connects a local LAN to a geographically separate network?

    • A.

      Switch

    • B.

      Hub

    • C.

      Router

    • D.

      Bridge

    Correct Answer
    C. Router
    Explanation
    A router is a device that connects a local LAN (Local Area Network) to a geographically separate network. It is responsible for directing network traffic between different networks, such as connecting a home network to the internet. Routers use routing tables to determine the best path for data packets to travel from one network to another. Unlike switches and hubs, which are used to connect devices within a local network, routers are specifically designed to connect different networks together. A bridge is used to connect two local networks, while a switch is used to connect multiple devices within a local network.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Refer to the exhibit. Router1 receives packets addressed as follows: Source IP address: 192.168.1.88Destination IP address: 172.16.0.3Source MAC address: 00-11-12-7a-41-10Destination MAC address: 00-11-5c-cc-a9-c0Source Port: 1464Destination Port: 23 Assuming that Router1 has not been configured with NAT, what will happen to the packets?

    • A.

      The packets will be sent to the server because it is a server-based port.

    • B.

      The packets will be sent to Switch2 and not leave the switch because the packets are local.

    • C.

      The packets will be sent to the laptop host.

    • D.

      The packets will be sent to Router1 and dropped because private addresses are not transmitted across the Internet.

    • E.

      The packets will be sent to Router2 and dropped because the server is not directly attached.

    Correct Answer
    D. The packets will be sent to Router1 and dropped because private addresses are not transmitted across the Internet.
    Explanation
    The packets will be sent to Router1 and dropped because private addresses are not transmitted across the Internet. Private IP addresses, such as 192.168.1.88, are used for internal networks and are not routable on the internet. Therefore, when Router1 receives packets with a private source IP address, it will drop them as it cannot forward them to the destination IP address on the internet.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Refer to the exhibit. If host 1 was to send an HTTP request to the web server that connects to Router2, what type of Layer 2 frame would be sent between Router1 and the ISP?

    • A.

      A frame with a header that contains the port number of 80

    • B.

      A frame with a header and trailer, but no MAC addresses

    • C.

      A frame with a header and a trailer that only contains IP addresses

    • D.

      A frame with the host 1 MAC address as the source and Router1 MAC address as the destination

    • E.

      A frame with the host 1 MAC address as the source and the server MAC address as the destination

    Correct Answer
    B. A frame with a header and trailer, but no MAC addresses
    Explanation
    When host 1 sends an HTTP request to the web server that connects to Router2, the Layer 2 frame that would be sent between Router1 and the ISP would not contain MAC addresses. This is because at Layer 2, the frames are encapsulated with MAC addresses for communication within a local network. However, when the frame is sent to the ISP, it is stripped of the MAC addresses and encapsulated with Layer 3 IP addresses for communication over the internet. Therefore, the frame would have a header and trailer, but no MAC addresses.

    • B.

      A cable modem

    • C.

      A DSL router

    • D.

      A DTE device

    • E.

      An SLA device

    Correct Answer
    A. A CSU/DSU
    Explanation
    A CSU/DSU (Channel Service Unit/Data Service Unit) is needed to connect the office router to the ISP if the service provider supplies a T1 line for the connection. A CSU/DSU is a device that provides the necessary interface between the router and the T1 line. It converts the digital data from the router into a format that can be transmitted over the T1 line and vice versa. It also performs functions such as line conditioning and synchronization, ensuring a reliable and efficient connection between the router and the ISP.

      Four packets of data were successfully received.

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. One packet timed out.
    E. Four packets of data were successfully received.
    Explanation
    From the output of the ping command, two facts can be determined. Firstly, one packet timed out, which means that the destination did not respond to that particular packet. Secondly, four packets of data were successfully received, indicating that the majority of the packets sent were received without any issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Refer to the exhibit. The switches are in their default configuration. Host A needs to communicate with host D, but host A does not have the MAC address for its default gateway. Which network hosts will receive the ARP request sent by host A?

    • A.

      Only host D

    • B.

      Only router R1

    • C.

      Only hosts A, B, C, and D

    • D.

      Only hosts B and C

    • E.

      Only hosts B, C, and router R1

    Correct Answer
    E. Only hosts B, C, and router R1
    Explanation
    Host A needs to communicate with host D, but it does not have the MAC address for its default gateway. In order to obtain the MAC address, host A will send an ARP request. This request will be broadcasted to all hosts within the same network segment, which includes hosts B and C. Additionally, the request will also be sent to the router R1, as it is the default gateway for host A. Therefore, the ARP request will be received by hosts B, C, and router R1.

What would the result be if the telnet 10.0.2.2 command is issued from Switch1 privileged mode?

    • A.

      The following prompt would appear: User Access Verification Password:

    • B.

      Switch2 would return a destination unreachable message to Switch1.

    • C.

      Router1 would return a destination unreachable message to Switch1.

    • D.

      The packet would be dropped.

    Correct Answer
    D. The packet would be dropped.
    Explanation
    The exhibit shows that Switch1 has been configured with an IP address of 10.0.1.8/24 on VLAN 1. However, there is no default gateway configured on Switch1. Therefore, when the telnet 10.0.2.2 command is issued from Switch1, the packet would be sent to the destination IP address 10.0.2.2, but since there is no default gateway, Switch1 does not know how to reach that destination network. As a result, the packet would be dropped.

    Correct Answer
    C. Create a public and private key pair
    Explanation
    The purpose of the "crypto key generate rsa" command is to create a public and private key pair. This key pair is necessary for establishing a secure SSH (Secure Shell) connection between the switch and the client. The public key is used to encrypt data sent from the client to the switch, while the private key is used to decrypt the data on the switch. This ensures that the communication between the switch and the client is secure and protected from unauthorized access.

    Refer to the exhibit. The devices have been configured with static IP addresses as shown. All hosts can communicate with each other but none of the hosts can communicate with the server. What is the cause of this problem?

    • A.

      The IP address that is assigned to the server is in an incorrect subnet.

    • B.

      The IP address that is assigned to the server is a broadcast address.

    • C.

      The IP address that is assigned to the server is a network address.

    • D.

      The switch to which the server is connected has not been assigned an IP address.

    • E.

      The RouterB LAN interface is incorrectly addressed in the RouterA LAN subnet.

    Correct Answer
    A. The IP address that is assigned to the server is in an incorrect subnet.
    Explanation
    The devices in the network have been configured with static IP addresses, but the server's IP address is in an incorrect subnet. This means that the server's IP address does not match the subnet mask used by the other devices in the network. As a result, the server cannot communicate with the other hosts because they are in different subnets.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    A network host has the IP address 10.250.206.55/20. How many more network devices can be added to this same subnetwork?

    • A.

      253

    • B.

      509

    • C.

      1021

    • D.

      2045

    • E.

      4093

    Correct Answer
    E. 4093
    Explanation
    The given IP address 10.250.206.55/20 indicates that it belongs to a subnet with a subnet mask of 20 bits. In a subnet with a 20-bit mask, the first 20 bits are used for the network address, leaving 12 bits for host addresses. With 12 bits, there are 2^12 (4096) possible host addresses. However, some of these addresses are reserved for network and broadcast addresses. In this case, the network address is 10.250.192.0 and the broadcast address is 10.250.207.255, leaving 4094 usable host addresses. Therefore, 4093 more network devices can be added to this same subnetwork.

  • 22. 

    Which type of Network Address Translation allows a host on a public network consistent access to a specified private inside host?

    • A.

      Port-based NAT

    • B.

      Static NAT

    • C.

      Dynamic NAT

    • D.

      NAT overload

    Correct Answer
    B. Static NAT
    Explanation
    Static NAT allows a host on a public network to have consistent access to a specified private inside host. With static NAT, a one-to-one mapping is created between the public IP address and the private IP address, ensuring that the inside host always has the same public IP address when communicating with the outside network. This allows for consistent and predictable access to the inside host from the public network.

    • D.

      192.168.7.2

    • E.

      198.133.219.44

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. 198.133.219.35
    E. 198.133.219.44
    Explanation
    The "inside global" addresses are the public IP addresses that are used on the outside network. In this case, the addresses 198.133.219.35 and 198.133.219.44 are the only ones that belong to the public IP address range, which makes them the "inside global" addresses. The other addresses (192.168.7.3, 64.100.1.5, and 192.168.7.2) are private IP addresses and therefore not considered "inside global" addresses.

    • E.

      196.123.142.190

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. 223.168.210.100
    D. 220.100.100.154
    E. 196.123.142.190
    Explanation
    The subnet mask 255.255.255.248 indicates that the network portion of the IP address is the first 29 bits, leaving the last 3 bits for host addresses. In binary, this subnet mask is represented as 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111000. This means that the valid host IP addresses must have the last 3 bits set to any value other than all zeros (network address) or all ones (broadcast address). Among the given options, 223.168.210.100, 220.100.100.154, and 196.123.142.190 have the last 3 bits set to non-zero values, making them valid host IP addresses.

    The broadcast address is the highest address in a subnetwork and is used to send a message to all devices on that subnetwork. In this case, the broadcast address for the subnetwork on which host A resides would be 10.159.255.255. This is because the given IP addresses are all in the range of 10.x.x.x, and the highest value for the third octet is 159. Therefore, the broadcast address would have the same first three octets (10.159) and the highest value for the fourth octet (255).
