  • Q1
    Which of the following benefits apply only to creating VLANs with switches and not to segmenting the network with regular switches?
    You can create multiple broadcast domains
    You can segment the network based on physical location
    You can create multiple collision domains
    You can provide guaranteed bandwidth between two devices
  • Q2
    You have two switches connected together as shown in the following diagram. How many broadcast domains are in the network?

  • Q3
    Computers A and B are on the same VLAN and are separated by two switches as shown in the exhibit. Computer A sends a frame to computer B. Which of the following best describes the composition of the frame as it travels from A to B?
    Question Image
    Computer A sends a normal frame. The first switch appends a VLAN ID to the frame. The VLAN ID remains on the frame through the second switch up to computer B.
    Computer A sends a normal frame. The first switch forwards the frame to the second switch, where the VLAN ID is appended to the frame and forwarded to computer B.
    Computer A appends a VLAN ID to the frame. It travels from switch to switch and arrives at computer B where it removes the VLAN ID.
    Computer A sends a normal frame. The first switch appends a VLAN ID to the frame. The second switch removes the VLAN ID before forwarding it to Computer B.
  • Q4
    Which of the following statements accurately describes a VLAN ID?
    VLAN IDs are defined at the network layer and help route the frame through the switch fabric
    VLAN IDs identify both the source and destination VLAN. They are like network addresses, except they exist at the data link layer.
    VLAN IDs identify the VLAN where the frame originated so the receiving host can reply.
    Switches append a VLAN ID to the header of each frame to identify the virtual network it belongs to.
  • Q5
    You manage a single subnet with three switches. The switches are connected to provide redundant paths between the switches. Which feature allows the switches to pass VLAN traffic between the switches?
    Spanning tree
  • Q6
    When configuring VLANs on a switch, what type of switch ports are members of all VLANs defined on the switch?
    Trunk ports
    Any port not assigned to a VLAN
    Each port can only be a member of a single VLAN
    Gigabit and higher ethernet ports.
  • Q7
    What name is given to a VLAN on an IEEE 802.1Q trunk whose frames are not tagged?
    VLAN 0
    Management VLAN
    Native VLAN
    Default VLAN
  • Q8
    You need to keep users in all other departments from accessing the servers used by the finance department. Which of the following technologies should you use to logically isolate the network?
    NIC teaming
    MAC filtering
  • Q9
    Which of the following best describes the concept of a VLAN?
    Devices in on the same network logically groups as if they were on separate networks.
    Devices on different networks that can receive multicast packets.
    Devices connected by a transmission medium other than cable (such as microwave or radio transmissions).
    Devices connected through the internet that can communicate without using a network address.
  • Q10
    Which of the following solutions would you implement to eliminate switching loops?
    Inter-VLAN routing
    Spanning tree
  • Q11
    What is a MAC address table?
    A form of computer data storage that stores data and machine code currently being used.
    A table stored in a router that lists the routes to particular network destinations.
    A table that holds MAC addresses so that a switch can determine where to forward traffic on a LAN.
    A table used to maintain a correlation between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address.
  • Q12
    What device is elected by the Spanning Tree Algorithm to which all other switches determine a single least-cost path?
    Core Switch
    Dedicated Bridge
    Default Gateway
    Root bridge
  • Q13
    Which of the following is not a port state utilized by STP?
