Networking 2012 test 3
Indicate whether the statement is true or false.
____ 1. The Application layer provides a set of interfaces for applications to access networked services, such as
networked file transfer, message handling, and database query processing.
____ 2. The PDU at the Application layer (and the Presentation and Session layers) is referred to simply as
____ 3. Encoding is the representation of 0s and 1s as a physical signal, such as electrical voltage or a light pulse.
____ 4. A packet is the basic unit for network traffic as it travels across the medium.
____ 5. The frame’s destination address of a broadcast frame is a value of all binary 0s.
____ 6. Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), or just IP, is a Transport layer protocol that provides source and destination
addressing and routing for the TCP/IP suite.
____ 7. Class A addresses are intended for use by large corporations and governments.
____ 8. The act of supernetting “borrows” bits from the network portion of an IP address to “lend” those bits to the
host portion.
____ 9. Combining two or more small networks into one larger network is one reason to subnet.
____ 10. Although installing several protocols on a machine to ensure interoperability with any operating system might
be tempting, adding unnecessary protocols can have a detrimental effect on network performance.
