____ 12. You are a network administrator for a company that is planning to open a small branch office in Idaho. The company has engaged a consultant to design the local area network (LAN) for the new office, and your supervisor has asked you to review the design submitted by the consultant. The documentation for the new network calls for the installation of 20 Ethernet workstations, all of which will be connected to a single Ethernet LAN. The consultant states in the document that “a broadband network is necessary, to enable all of the workstations to coexist on the same packet switching network,” and then calls for the installation of coaxial cable, “a broadband medium that is more than capable of supporting the communications of 20 workstations, as demonstrated in any home with cable television.” After reading the document, you immediately call your supervisor and recommend that the company find a new consultant. Which of the following are valid reasons for this conclusion?
a. Ethernet does not run on coaxial cable.
b. A broadband medium is not necessary to support multiple workstations on a packet switching network.
c. Cable television networks do not use broadband signaling.
d. Coaxial cable does not support broadband signaling.


____ 13. You have been hired to design and implement a network. The client has a small number of users in a single office location. The client wants to use a topology that runs at 100 megabits per second (Mbps) and allows new systems to be added easily to the network. The client is concerned with cost and maintenance issues, such as cable failures that would cause the network to go down. Given this scenario, which of the following would you recommend to the client?
a. A bus topology using coaxial cable
b. A star topology using twisted-pair cable
c. A full mesh topology with fiber-optic cable
d. A ring topology with twisted-pair cable


____ 14. You have been hired by a corporation to design and implement a single local area network (LAN) for its manufacturing plant. The manufacturing division uses sophisticated equipment to produce circuit boards. The controllers that manage the manufacturing equipment require a deterministic network topology that isn’t subject to collisions in order to guarantee access to the communication channel. The LAN needs to support a data rate of 100 megabits per second (Mbps) and provide a backup path for communication if there is a physical layer failure. Which of the following solutions best meets this corporation’s needs?
a. Install a Fast Ethernet network configured as star topology and use Category 5 (CAT5) or Category 6 (CAT6) cable (which support 100 Mbps) for the LAN.
b. Install a Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) ring network configured in a double ring topology and use fiber-optic cabling for the LAN.
c. Install a Token Ring network configured as a ring topology and use shielded twisted-pair (STP) type 1 and 6 cabling for the LAN.
d. Install a Fast Ethernet network configured as a linear bus topology and use Category 3 (CAT3) cable for the LAN.


____ 15. While replacing a light fixture in the office building housing Contoso, Ltd., a maintenance worker accidentally severs a network cable in the drop ceiling. Contoso uses a variety of local area network (LAN) technologies throughout the structure, but on that particular floor there are three separate LANs: a 10-node thin Ethernet LAN using coaxial cable in a bus topology, a 25-node Fast Ethernet LAN using twisted-pair cable in a star topology, and a 5-node Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) LAN using fiber-optic cable in a double ring topology. Without knowing which of the LANs the severed cable belongs to, what is the maximum number of computers that will be directly affected by the cable break?
a. 0
b. 1
c. 5
d. 10
e. 25


____ 16. Which of the following topologies broadcasts transmitted signals to all end systems connected to a central device using twisted-pair cabling?
a. Bus
b. Star
c. Full mesh
d. Wireless
e. Ring


____ 17. Which of the following topologies is usually physically configured as a star using a central hub, but logically operates as a ring?
a. Bus
b. Star
c. Full mesh
d. Full star
e. Ring


____ 18. You have been hired to install network cabling for a small private company with 15 employees who need to share files and printers. All employees are physically located within the same building in two separate office spaces directly adjacent to each other, sharing a common wall and door for access. Both offices have drop ceilings with ceiling tiles. Your client wants a simple, fast [100 megabit-per-second (Mbps)] network installation that’s easy to troubleshoot. In addition, your client wants to keep installation costs to a minimum. From the following list, select the combination of topology, cable type, and installation method that best meets your client’s needs.
a. Star topology, fiber-optic cabling, and internal installation
b. Ring topology, coaxial cabling, and external installation
c. Full mesh topology, fiber-optic cabling, and external installation

____ 22. Review the following illustration. Station A is sending a message to Station B.



If you examined the contents of the frame as it traveled across Segment 1, what would the source and destination Media Access Control (MAC) addresses be?
a. The source MAC address would be AA, and the destination MAC address would be 22.
b. The source MAC address would be BB, and the destination MAC address would be 11.
c. The source MAC address would be AA, and the destination MAC address would be 11.
d. The source MAC address would be AA, and the destination MAC address would be BB.


____ 23. Review the following illustration. How many collision domains and broadcast domains exist in the network diagram?



a. There are three collision domains and three broadcast domains.
b. There are one collision domain and three broadcast domains.
c. There are one broadcast domain and three collision domains.
d. There are no collision domains and only one broadcast domain.


____ 24. Which of the following statements about full-duplex communication is not true?

b. Only the transmitting device must support full-duplex communication.
c. Full-duplex communication is not subject to collisions.
d. Full-duplex communication does not use the Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) access control method.


____ 25. Which of the following statements about hubs is not true?
a. They are data-link layer devices that connect network devices in a star or ring topology.
b. They are physical layer devices that connect network devices in a star or ring topology.
c. They amplify and repeat signals received through one port out all other ports regardless of the destination.

Thank you soo much! You have been awesome! I do have a study guide that I need completed for my other Class. I have it posted here but no one has been able to help. I don't have the midterm/test for a few weeks but the study guide is 100 questions and there are like 11 or so that I can't figure out. Is there anyway you could take a look at it? I have it listed for $40 dollars.
thanks
Network Technician: D.Sandlin, Network Administrator replied 7 years ago
Ive taken a look at it..

But it seems to be math and programming based.. And that isnt my area.. Id want to be very sure about it if i was going to write a study guide for you..

What i can suggest though.. is you close the original question.. And repost it in computers with just the 11 your having a hard time with..

That way. Experts will see it as a new question on their list.. and tonight is a great time to post it..

Lots of us are on right now.. and the weekend is ahead.. so you stand a good chance if gaving it done by this weekend..
