Do I Know This Already Quiz

The purpose of the "Do I Know This Already?" quiz is to help you decide whether you really need to read the entire chapter. If you already intend to read the entire chapter, you do not necessarily need to answer these questions now.

The 12-question quiz, derived from the major sections in the "Foundation Topics" portion of the chapter, helps you determine how to spend your limited study time.

Table 5-1 outlines the major topics discussed in this chapter and the "Do I Know This Already?" quiz questions that correspond to those topics.

NOTE The goal of self-assessment is to gauge your mastery of the topics in this chapter. If you do not know the answer to a question or are only partially sure of the answer, you should mark this question wrong for purposes of the self-assessment. Giving yourself credit for an answer that you correctly guess skews your self-assessment results and might provide you with a false sense of security.

1. Which of the following describes the functions of OSI Layer 3 protocols?

a. Logical addressing b. Physical addressing c. Path selection d. Arbitration e. Error recovery

2. Imagine that PC1 needs to send some data to PC2, and PC1 and PC2 are separated by several routers. What are the largest entities that make it from PC1 to PC2?













3. Which of the following does a router normally use when making a decision about routing TCP/IP?

a. Destination MAC address b. Source MAC address c. Destination IP address d. Source IP address e. Destination MAC and IP address

4. Imagine a network with two routers that are connected with a point-to-point HDLC serial link. Each router has an Ethernet, with PC1 sharing the Ethernet with Router1, and PC2 sharing an Ethernet with Router2. When PC1 sends data to PC2, which of the following is true?

a. Router1 strips the Ethernet header and trailer off the frame received from PC1, never to be used again.

b. Router1 encapsulates the Ethernet frame inside an HDLC header and sends the frame to Router2, which extracts the Ethernet frame for forwarding to PC2.

c. Router1 strips the Ethernet header and trailer off the frame received from PC1, which is exactly re-created by R2 before forwarding data to PC2.

d. Router1 removes the Ethernet, IP, and TCP headers, and rebuilds the appropriate headers before forwarding the packet to Router2.

5. Which of the following are valid Class C IP addresses?
