Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    In which two of the following topologies will the addition of more nodes detrimentally affect the network's performance?
    • A. 

      Bus

    • B. 

      Star

    • C. 

      Ring

    • D. 

      Mesh

  • 2. 
    At any given time, how many tokens circulate on a simple ring network?
    • A. 

      One

    • B. 

      Five

    • C. 

      Ten

    • D. 

      There are no limits on the number of tokens that may circulate.

  • 3. 
    What is the function of a token on a token-passing ring network?
    • A. 

      It signals to the rest of the network to listen for traffic.

    • B. 

      It signals to the rest of the network that the MAU is receiving an excessive number of errors.

    • C. 

      It enables multiple nodes on the network to transmit data simultaneously.

    • D. 

      It enables one node on the network to transmit data at any one time.

  • 4. 
    A modern day Token Ring network actually uses which of the following hybrid topologies?
    • A. 

      Star-bus

    • B. 

      Ring-bus

    • C. 

      Ring-tree

    • D. 

      Star-ring

  • 5. 
    In how many directions is data transmitted on a ring network?
    • A. 

      One

    • B. 

      Two

    • C. 

      It depends on the number of nodes on the network.

    • D. 

      It depends on the location of the nodes on the network.

  • 6. 
    What would happen to the entire network if one of the nodes in a simple ring network failed?
    • A. 

      Performance over the entire network would suffer slightly.

    • B. 

      The failed node would be affected, but other nodes would be fine.

    • C. 

      Data would no longer be transmitted to or from any nodes.

    • D. 

      Errors would be broadcast to every node.

  • 7. 
    What ring element must a node posses before it is able to transmit over a ring network?
    • A. 

      Sender code

    • B. 

      Transcender

    • C. 

      Token

    • D. 

      A node on a ring network can transmit at any time without restriction.
