The total amount of time to take the quiz is 30 minutes for a total of 6 questions.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The Data Link layer is traditionally broken into two sub-layers: Please explain in details.

  • 2. 

    Please write about the Benefits of the OSI Model

  • 3. 

     The upper layers of the OSI model are, in correct order -

    • A.

      Session, application, presentation

    • B.

      Session, presentation, application

    • C.

      session, application, presentation, physical

    • D.

      Application, presentation, session, physical

    Correct Answer
    B. Session, presentation, application
    Explanation
    By convention, the "upper layers" of OSI consist of session (layer five), presentation (layer six), and application (layer seven). All other layers of OSI belong in the "lower layers" category, although some references will claim that the transport layer (layer four) also belongs in the upper layers.

    Overall, the distinction between upper and lower layers in OSI is not nearly as important as the ordering and purpose of each layer individually.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following are benefits of using a layered network model? A . it specifies how changes to one layer must be propagated through the other layers B . it facilitates troubleshooting C . it focuses on details rather than general functions of networking D . it breaks the complex process of networking into more manageable chunks E . it allows layers developed by different vendors to interoperate.

    • A.

      A and B only

    • B.

      B,D and E

    • C.

      A and C only

    • D.

      None of the above

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. B,D and E
    Explanation
    A layered network model facilitates troubleshooting by dividing the network into separate layers, allowing for easier identification and isolation of issues. It breaks down the complex process of networking into more manageable chunks, making it easier to understand and implement. Additionally, it allows for interoperability between layers developed by different vendors, promoting flexibility and compatibility in network systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    True or False: The network layer uses physical addresses to route data to destination hosts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The network layer uses logical addresses to route data to destination hosts.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Think of the physical layer as the "electrical" layer of the model - the physical layer is the layer of low-level networking equipment, such as some ____________,____________and _________ . The physical layer is _________concerned with protocols or other such higher-layer nonsense.

    Correct Answer
    hubs, cabling, and repeaters. never
    Explanation
    Think of the physical layer as the "electrical" layer of the model - the physical layer is the layer of low-level networking equipment, such as some hubs, cabling, and repeaters. The physical layer is never concerned with protocols or other such higher-layer nonsense.
