Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This transmits light rather than electronic signals, which reduces the risks of electrical interference. Select one:

    • A.

      Unshielded Twisted Pair

    • B.

      Coaxial Cable

    • C.

      Fiber Optic Cable 

    • D.

      Shielded Twisted Pair

    Correct Answer
    C. Fiber Optic Cable 
    Explanation
    Fiber optic cable transmits light instead of electronic signals, which reduces the risks of electrical interference. This is because light signals are not affected by electromagnetic interference, unlike electronic signals. Therefore, fiber optic cables are commonly used in environments where there is a high risk of electrical interference, such as in industrial settings or areas with high levels of electromagnetic radiation.

    This is a group of computers and connected devices that share a common communication line to a server. Select one:

    • A.

      DHCP Server

    • B.

      Hub

    • C.

      Local Area Network

    • D.

      IP Address

    • E.

      Client

    Correct Answer
    C. Local Area Network
    Explanation
    A Local Area Network (LAN) is a group of computers and connected devices that share a common communication line to a server. This allows for the devices within the LAN to communicate and share resources with each other. The LAN is typically confined to a small geographic area, such as a home, office, or building, and is often used for sharing files, printers, and internet access.

    This is how the network of devices/computers is arranged through the connection of various nodes through lines of connections. Select one:

    • A.

      Computer Network

    • B.

      Network Topology 

    • C.

      Network Category

    • D.

      Hybrid Connection

    Correct Answer
    B. Network Topology 
    Explanation
    Network topology refers to the arrangement of devices and computers in a network through connections. It describes how the nodes are connected and the structure of the network. This includes the physical and logical layout of the network, such as the types of connections used (wired or wireless) and the overall architecture (bus, star, ring, etc.). Network topology helps determine how data flows within the network and how devices communicate with each other. It is an essential concept in understanding and managing computer networks.

    This is the most popular type of cable used for Local Area networks. It has two shielded wires twisted around each other. Select one:

    • A.

      Fiber Optic Cable

    • B.

      Shielded Twisted Pair Cable 

    • C.

      Coaxial Cable

    • D.

      Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable

    Correct Answer
    D. Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Unshielded Twisted Pair Cable. This type of cable is commonly used for Local Area Networks (LANs) because it is cost-effective and provides good performance for short to medium distances. It consists of two insulated copper wires twisted around each other, which helps to reduce electromagnetic interference. Unlike shielded twisted pair cables, it does not have additional shielding layers, making it easier to install and more flexible.

    It is the medium through which information usually moves from one network device to another. Select one:

    • A.

      Wire Packet

    • B.

      Cable

    • C.

      Patch Panels

    • D.

      Topology

    • E.

      Modular Box

    Correct Answer
    B. Cable
    Explanation
    Cable is the correct answer because it is the physical medium that is used to transmit information between network devices. It can be in the form of copper wires, fiber optic cables, or coaxial cables. Without a cable, data cannot be transmitted from one device to another in a network.

  • 6. 

    It is used to connect and route circuits for monitoring, interconnecting, and testing circuits in a convenient and flexible network. Organizing these is important in the workplace to minimize hazards like hanging and opening network cables. Select one:

    • A.

      Switch

    • B.

      Router

    • C.

      Hub

    • D.

      Modular Box

    • E.

      Patch Panel 

    Correct Answer
    E. Patch Panel 
    Explanation
    A patch panel is used to connect and route circuits for monitoring, interconnecting, and testing circuits in a convenient and flexible network. It helps in organizing network cables in the workplace, minimizing hazards such as hanging and opening cables.

    This is a network device that forwards data packets along networks. It is connected to at least two networks, usually two LANs or WANs or a LAN and the ISP network. Select one:

    • A.

      Repeater

    • B.

      Router

    • C.

      Hub 

    • D.

      Switch

    Correct Answer
    B. Router
    Explanation
    A router is a network device that is responsible for forwarding data packets between different networks. It is typically connected to at least two networks, such as two LANs or a LAN and the ISP network. Unlike a hub or switch, which are used for connecting devices within a single network, a router is used for connecting and directing traffic between different networks. Therefore, a router is the correct answer for this question.

    There are two wiring standards used for Ethernet networking and for cables. Which of the wiring standards is most commonly used in the Philippines? Select one:

    • A.

      T683A

    • B.

      T568B

    • C.

      T568A

    • D.

      T478A

    Correct Answer
    B. T568B
    Explanation
    T568B is the most commonly used wiring standard in the Philippines for Ethernet networking and cables. This standard specifies the arrangement of the wires inside an Ethernet cable, ensuring compatibility and proper functioning of the network. It is widely adopted in the Philippines and many other countries, providing a standardized approach to networking infrastructure.

    For a crossover cable of T568A and T568B wires, what are the four wires that change their places? Select one:

    • A.

      Brown Stripe, Brown, Blue Stripe, Blue

    • B.

      Green Stripe, Green, Orange Stripe, Orange

    • C.

      Orange Stripe, Orange, Blue Stripe, Blue

    • D.

      Blue Stripe, Blue, Green Stripe, Green 

    Correct Answer
    B. Green Stripe, Green, Orange Stripe, Orange
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Green Stripe, Green, Orange Stripe, Orange. In a crossover cable, the wires are rearranged to allow for direct communication between two devices without the need for a network switch. The T568A and T568B are two different wiring standards commonly used for Ethernet cables. In T568A, the green and orange pairs are swapped, so the green stripe and green wires change places, and the orange stripe and orange wires change places.

    A _______ acts as a buffer between computers and the internet.

    • A.

      Ethernet connection

    • B.

      Hub

    • C.

      Client

    • D.

      Proxy Server

    Correct Answer
    D. Proxy Server
    Explanation
    A proxy server acts as a buffer between computers and the internet by intercepting requests from clients and forwarding them to the internet on behalf of the clients. It helps to improve security and privacy by hiding the IP addresses of the clients and providing additional layers of protection against cyber threats. Additionally, a proxy server can also cache web content, which helps to improve network performance and reduce bandwidth usage.
