Refer to the exhibit. The switches are in their default configuration. Host A needs to communicate with host D, but host A does not have the MAC address for its default gateway. Which network hosts will receive the ARP request sent by host A?
ITN Chapter 5 Exam Answers 002
- only host D
- only router R1
- only hosts A, B, and C
- only hosts A, B, C, and D
- only hosts B and C
- only hosts B, C, and router R1
|Explanation:Since host A does not have the MAC address of the default gateway in its ARP table, host A sends an ARP broadcast. The ARP broadcast would be sent to every device on the local network. Hosts B, C, and router R1 would receive the broadcast. Router R1 would not forward the message.
