CCNA Cyber Ops FAQ: Fundamentals of Networking Protocols and Networking Devices

Q1. Which layer of the TCP/IP model is concerned with end-to-end communication and offers multiplexing service?
A. Transport
B. Internet
C. Link layer
D. Application

Answer: A. The transport layer is concerned with end-to-end communication and provides multiplexing through the use of sockets.

Q2. Which statement is true concerning a link working in Ethernet half-duplex mode?
A. A collision cannot happen.

Q12. Which one of these protocols requires a connection to be established before transmitting data?

Answer: A. TCP requires a connection to be established through a three-way handshake before transmitting data.

Q13. What is the TCP window field used for?
A. Error detection
B. Flow control
C. Fragmentation
D. Multiplexing

Answer: B. The TCP window is used for flow control.

Q14. At which OSI layer does a router typically operate?
A. Transport
B. Network
C. Data link
D. Application

Answer: B. A router mainly operates at the Network layer.

Q15. What are the advantages of a full-duplex transmission mode compared to half-duplex mode? (Select all that apply.)
A. Each station can transmit and receive at the same time.
B. It avoids collisions.
C. It makes use of backofftime.
D. It uses a collision avoidance algorithm to transmit.

Answer: A and B. In full-duplex mode, a station can transmit and receive at the same time. This prevents collisions form happening.

Q16. How many broadcast domains are created if three hosts are connected to a Layer 2 switch in full-duplex mode?
A. 4
B. 3
C. None
D. 1

Answer: D. Because no Layer 3 device is involved, there is only one broadcast domain.

A. A multilayer switch includes Layer 3 functionality.

B. A multilayer switch can be deployed on multiple racks.

C. A Layer 2 switch is faster.
