    B. Metropolitan Area Network
    Explanation
    A Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a network that covers a larger geographical area than a Local Area Network (LAN) but smaller than a Wide Area Network (WAN). It typically spans across a city or a metropolitan area and connects multiple LANs together. MANs are designed to provide high-speed data transmission and are commonly used by organizations or institutions that have multiple branches or locations within a city. Therefore, the correct answer is Metropolitan Area Network.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Types of networks can be categorized based on the geographical area they cover. This means that different types of networks can be distinguished based on the extent of their coverage, such as Local Area Networks (LANs) that cover a small area like a home or office, Wide Area Networks (WANs) that cover a larger area like a city or country, and Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) that cover an intermediate area between LANs and WANs. Therefore, the statement "Types of Networks are Categories by their Geographical Area cover" is true.
