    Please look at the following configuration and pick the option which describes it's function:ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.1.2 10ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.5.5 20 
    • A. 

      The router will send traffic to the next hop 172.16.5.5 due to the higher priority. If reachability to this neighbor is lost, packets will be sent to 172.16.1.2

    • B. 

      The router will send packets to the address of 172.16.1.2 due to the lower administrative distance, if reachability to this neighbor is lost, packets will be sent to 172.16.5.5

    • C. 

      Hosts attached to ports in the same VLAN can be in different IP networks

    • D. 

      Hosts attached to ports in different broadcast domains will need to communicate via a router

    • E.
