Take this ultimate quiz on computer network topologies and share with your friends too!

• 1.

### what are networks ?_____________________________________________________________

computers that are connected together sharing resources
devices that are connected together sharing resources
Explanation
Networks are systems in which computers or devices are connected together to share resources. This allows for the sharing of information, data, and services between the connected devices. By connecting computers or devices, users can access shared files, printers, and internet connections. This enables efficient communication, collaboration, and resource utilization within a network.

### Any computers and devices that are connected togethe by cable or wirelessly and communicates with each other, can be considered a NETWORK?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A network refers to a group of computers and devices that are connected to each other, either through cables or wirelessly, and can communicate with one another. Therefore, any computers and devices that are connected in this manner can be considered a network.

### What are topologies ?___________________________________________

physical layout of computers or device in a network
the way computer are organized on a network
Explanation
Topologies refer to the physical layout of computers or devices in a network and how they are organized. It involves the arrangement and connections between nodes in a network, determining how data is transmitted and received. This includes various types such as bus, star, ring, mesh, and hybrid topologies, each having its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of scalability, fault tolerance, and cost-effectiveness. Understanding topologies is crucial for designing and managing networks efficiently.

### What are the three (3) basic topologies ?

ring star bus
star ring bus
Explanation
The correct answer is ring star bus and star ring bus. These are the three basic topologies commonly used in computer networks. The ring topology connects all devices in a circular manner, with each device connected to exactly two other devices. The star topology connects all devices to a central hub or switch, forming a star-like structure. The bus topology connects all devices to a single communication line, with each device being able to transmit data to all other devices on the line.

### Computers are conected to one common cable and data is sent along that cable but only the destination computer responds. what type of topology is it ?

• A.

Ring topology

• B.

Star topology

• C.

Bus topology

• D.

Car topology

C. Bus topology
Explanation
In a bus topology, all computers are connected to a single cable called the "bus." Data is sent along this cable, and only the destination computer responds. This matches the scenario described in the question, where computers are connected to a common cable and only the destination computer responds. Therefore, the correct answer is bus topology.

• 6.

### Data is sent from one computer to the next computer in the same direction. each computer acts as a repeater n sends the same message to the other computer until it reaches its destination. what topology is that ?

• A.

Bus topology

• B.

Ring topology

• C.

Star topology

• D.

None of the above

B. Ring topology
Explanation
In a ring topology, data is sent from one computer to the next computer in the same direction, just like in the given scenario. Each computer acts as a repeater, sending the same message to the other computer until it reaches its destination. This is different from a bus topology, where data is sent to all computers on the network, and a star topology, where data is sent to a central hub that then distributes it to the other computers. Therefore, the given scenario aligns with the characteristics of a ring topology.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Which topology is considered easiet ?

• A.

Ring topology

• B.

Star topology

• C.

Network topology

• D.

Bus topology

D. Bus topology
Explanation
The bus topology is considered the easiest topology because it is simple to set up and maintain. In a bus topology, all devices are connected to a single cable called the bus. This eliminates the need for complex wiring and reduces the chances of cable failure. Additionally, adding or removing devices is straightforward as it only requires connecting or disconnecting them from the bus. This simplicity makes the bus topology a popular choice for small networks or environments where ease of installation and maintenance is a priority.

• 8.

### Which topology uses a switch in the central part of its design ?

• A.

Star topology

• B.

Ring topology

• C.

Bus topology

• D.

Cable topology

A. Star topology
Explanation
The star topology uses a switch in the central part of its design. In this topology, all devices are connected to a central switch, forming a star-like structure. The switch acts as a central hub, allowing communication between all connected devices. This design offers several advantages, such as easy scalability, high performance, and fault tolerance, as the failure of one device does not affect the entire network.

### Network and topogies makes it easier for computers and devices to share data whether in large organisations or large buildings.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because networks and topologies provide a means for computers and devices to connect and communicate with each other. This allows for the sharing of data, whether it is within a large organization or a large building. Networks provide a framework for data transfer and enable devices to access shared resources, such as printers or servers. Different topologies, such as star, bus, or ring, offer various ways for devices to be interconnected, ensuring efficient data sharing and communication.

### John has three computers at home, he his thinking about setting up a small network to share his  software from his host (main) computer to the other computers. which basic topology would you consider best to suite John's needs?

• A.

Star topology

• B.

Ring topology

• C.

Bus topology

• D.

Switches

C. Bus topology
Explanation
A bus topology would be the best choice for John's needs because it is the simplest and most cost-effective option for a small network setup. In a bus topology, all computers are connected to a single cable, called a bus, which acts as a shared communication medium. This allows John to easily share his software from his host computer to the other computers on the network. Additionally, the bus topology is flexible and easy to expand, making it suitable for future growth if John decides to add more computers to his network.
