    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Connected devices share the resources of a single processor or server within a small geographic area
    Explanation
    A LAN, or Local Area Network, refers to a network of connected devices that share resources, such as a processor or server, within a small geographic area. This type of network is typically found within businesses and schools. It allows for efficient sharing of resources and enables communication and data transfer between connected devices.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Mr. John is a small businessman who runs Hardware. He has been experiencing problems with his small accounting department, which he depends on to provide sales reports. Mr. John wants to share information between his 7 computer stations and have on central printing area. What type of network would you recommend to Mr. John?

    • A.

      MAN

    • B.

      LAN

    • C.

      WAN

    • D.

      SAN

    Correct Answer
    B. LAN
    Explanation
    Based on the given scenario, a Local Area Network (LAN) would be the most suitable network type for Mr. John. A LAN is a network that connects computers and devices within a limited area, such as a small office or building. It allows for the sharing of resources, such as printers and files, among the connected computers. Since Mr. John wants to share information between his 7 computer stations and have a central printing area, a LAN would provide the necessary connectivity and functionality for his small business.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What covers a larger geographical area than MAN?

    • A.

      WAN

    • B.

      LAN

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. WAN
    Explanation
    A WAN (Wide Area Network) covers a larger geographical area than a MAN (Metropolitan Area Network). While a MAN typically covers a city or a metropolitan area, a WAN can span across multiple cities, countries, or even continents. Therefore, WAN is the correct answer as it encompasses a larger geographical area compared to a MAN.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which type of network consists of both LANs and MANs?

    • A.

      Wide Area Network

    • B.

      Local Area Network

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Wide Area Network
    Explanation
    A Wide Area Network (WAN) consists of both Local Area Networks (LANs) and Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). LANs are used to connect devices within a small geographical area, such as an office or a building, while MANs connect multiple LANs within a larger geographical area, such as a city. Therefore, a WAN includes both LANs and MANs, making "Both A and B" the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Arrange the Following Types of Networks according to their size, from largest to smallest?

    • A.

      LAN, WAN, MAN

    • B.

      WAN, LAN, MAN

    • C.

      MAN, LAN, WAN

    • D.

      WAN, MAN, LAN

    Correct Answer
    D. WAN, MAN, LAN
    Explanation
    In this question, we are asked to arrange the types of networks according to their size, from largest to smallest. LAN stands for Local Area Network, which is the smallest network that covers a limited geographical area, such as a home, office, or building. MAN stands for Metropolitan Area Network, which covers a larger area, such as a city or town. WAN stands for Wide Area Network, which is the largest network that covers a wide geographical area, such as multiple cities or even countries. Therefore, the correct arrangement from largest to smallest is WAN, MAN, LAN.

  • 8. 

    You are a member of a club that deals with computer networks. The club has to take a project to build a MAN. Where would this project likely take place?

    • A.

      A small building/organization

    • B.

      University or college

    • C.

      Home

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. University or college
    Explanation
    This project would likely take place in a university or college because these institutions typically have the resources, infrastructure, and expertise to undertake such a project. They often have dedicated departments or research centers focused on computer networks and would have the necessary equipment, funding, and personnel to successfully build a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). Additionally, universities and colleges often engage in research and development activities, making them suitable environments for this type of project.

    What does the acronym MAN stand for?

    • A.

      Magnetic Access Network

    • B.

      Metropolitan Area Network

    • C.

      Multi-Area Network

    • D.

      Multi-Access Net

    Correct Answer
    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 connects multiple LANs within a city or metropolitan area, providing high-speed communication and data transfer between different locations. MANs are typically owned and operated by telecommunications companies or internet service providers, and they are used to connect businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, and other organizations within a specific region.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    In your school there is a library, and you can use the internet to do research, this library will most likely be a _______ network.

    • A.

      MAN

    • B.

      LAN

    • C.

      WAN 

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. WAN 
    Explanation
    Since the question mentions using the internet to do research, it suggests that the library is connected to a wide area network (WAN). A wide area network is a network that connects multiple local area networks (LANs) over a large geographical area, such as different schools or offices in different locations. Therefore, the library in the school would most likely be a WAN network.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which network topologies have the highest transmission speed?

    • A.

      LAN

    • B.

      WAN

    • C.

      MAN

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. LAN
    Explanation
    LAN (Local Area Network) has the highest transmission speed among the given network topologies. LANs are typically confined to a small geographical area, such as a building or campus, and are designed for high-speed data transmission within that area. They use technologies like Ethernet or Wi-Fi, which offer fast and reliable connections. In contrast, WANs (Wide Area Networks) cover larger areas and are often slower due to the limitations of long-distance transmission. MANs (Metropolitan Area Networks) fall in between LANs and WANs in terms of size and transmission speed. Therefore, LAN is the correct answer as it provides the highest transmission speed.

    IPv6 addresses have a size of:

    • A.

      64 bits

    • B.

      128 bits

    • C.

      256 bits

    • D.

      512 bits

    Correct Answer
    B. 128 bits
    Explanation
    IPv6 addresses have a size of 128 bits. This means that an IPv6 address is composed of 128 binary digits, allowing for a much larger address space compared to IPv4. The increased address space in IPv6 allows for the creation of more unique addresses to support the growing number of devices connected to the internet.
