1. Which term is used to describe the process of placing one message format into another

    format so that the message can be delivered across the appropriate medium? • flow control

    • encapsulation

    • encoding

    • multicasting

    • access method

2. Refer to the graphic. Five PCs are connected through a hub. If host H1 wants to reply to a

    message from host H2, which statement is true?

    • H1 sends a unicast message to H2, but the hub forwards it to all devices.

    • H1 sends a unicast message to H2, and the hub forwards it directly to H2. • H1 sends a broadcast message to H2, and the hub forwards it to all devices.

    • H1 sends a multicast message to H2, and the hub forwards it directly to H2.

3. Which two statements concerning networking standards are true? (Choose two.)

    • adds complexity to networks

    • encourages vendors to create proprietary protocols

    • provides consistent interconnections across networks

    • ensures that communications work best in a single-vendor environment

    • simplifies new product development

4. What does the 100 mean when referencing the 100BASE-T Ethernet standard?

    • type of cable used

    • type of data transmission

    • speed of transmission

    • type of connector required

    • maximum length of cable allowed

    5. Which address does an NIC use when deciding whether to accept a frame? • source IP address

    • source MAC address

    • destination IP address

    • destination MAC address

    • source Ethernet address

    6. Which type of address is used in an Ethernet frame header? • logical addresses only

    • IP addresses only

    • MAC addresses only

    • broadcast addresses only

    7. What is the function of the FCS field in an Ethernet frame? • detects transmission errors

• provides timing for transmission

    • contains the start of frame delimiter

    • indicates which protocol will receive the frame

    8. What is the purpose of logical addresses in an IP network? • They identify a specific NIC on a host device.

    • They are used to determine which host device accepts the frame.

    • They provide vendor-specific information about the host.

    • They are used to determine the network that the host is located on.

    • They are used by switches to make forwarding decisions.

9. Which device accepts a message on one port and always forwards the message to all other


    • modem

    • switch

    • router

    • hub

10. Which two networking devices are used to connect hosts to the access layer? (Choose


    • router

    • hub

    • switch

    • server

    • computer

11. Host A needs to learn the MAC address of Host B, which is on the same LAN segment. A

    message has been sent to all the hosts on the segment asking for the MAC address of Host B.

    Host B responds with its MAC address and all other hosts disregard the request. What protocol

    was used in this scenario?

    • ARP

    • DHCP

    • DNS

    • WINS

12. A switch receives a frame with a destination MAC address that is currently not in the MAC

    table. What action does the switch perform?

    • It drops the frame.

    • It sends out an ARP request looking for the MAC address.

    • It floods the frame out of all active ports, except the origination port.

    • It returns the frame to the sender.

    13. What is a benefit of having a router within the distribution layer? • prevents collisions on a local network

• keeps broadcasts contained within a local network

    • controls which hosts have access to the network

    • controls host-to-host traffic within a single local network

    14. Refer to the graphic. What does the router do after it determines that a data packet from Network 1 should be forwarded to Network 2?

    • It sends the data packet as it was received.

    • It reassembles the frame with different MAC addresses than the original frame.

    • It reassembles the data packet with different IP addresses than the original data packet.

    • It reassembles both the packet and the frame with different destination IP and MAC addresses.

    15. Which table does a router use to make decisions on where a data packet is to be sent? • ARP table

    • routing table

    • network table

    • forwarding table

    16. If the default gateway is configured incorrectly on the host, what is the impact on communications?

    • The host is unable to communicate on the local network.

    • The host can communicate with other hosts on the local network, but is unable to communicate with hosts on remote networks.

    • The host can communicate with other hosts on remote networks, but is unable to communicate with hosts on the local network.

    • There is no impact on communications.

    17. What device is typically used as the default gateway for a computer? • a server hosted by the ISP

    • the router interface closest to the computer

    • a server managed by a central IT department

    • the switch interface that connects to the computer

    18. If a router receives a packet that it does not know how to forward, what type of route must be configured on the router to prevent the router from dropping it? • dynamic route

    • default route

    • destination route

    • default destination

    19. Which two items are included in a network logical map? (Choose two.) • naming scheme

    • IP addressing scheme

    • length of cable runs

• physical location of networking devices

    • specific layout of interconnections between networking devices and hosts

20. An integrated router can normally perform the functions of which two other network devices?

    (Choose two.)

    • NIC

    • switch

    • e-mail server

    • application server

    • wireless access point

21. What is a reason for disabling simple file sharing?

    • It enables the user to map a remote resource with a local drive. • It enables the user to share all files with all users and groups.

    • It enables the user to share printers.

    • It enables the user to set more specific security access levels.
