CCNA 3 Chapter 7 EIGRP Exam Answers 2017 (v5.0.3 + v6.0)

1. In which scenario will the use of EIGRP automatic summarization cause inconsistent routing in a network?

  • to prevent the router from sending EIGRP packets

3. Refer to the exhibit. Routers R1 and R2 are directly connected via their serial interfaces and are both running the EIGRP routing protocol.
