    DNS Stands for?

    • A.

      Domain Name Software

    • B.

      Dynamic Name System

    • C.

      Domain Name Server

    • D.

      Data Name System

    Correct Answer
    C. Domain Name Server
    Explanation
    DNS stands for Domain Name Server.

    Ping works on ……………………………………Protocol?                            

    • A.

      SNMP

      ICMP

    • C.

      ARP

    • D.

      RARP

    Correct Answer
    B. ICMP
    Explanation
    Ping works on ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol). ICMP is used to send error messages and operational information about network conditions. Ping uses ICMP Echo Request and Echo Reply messages to check the reachability and round-trip time of a network host. When a ping command is sent, an ICMP Echo Request message is sent to the target host, and if the host is reachable, it will respond with an ICMP Echo Reply message. This allows the sender to determine if the target host is online and measure the network latency.
