This quiz is based on Computer Network question asked in GATE exams. This quiz is helpful for aspiring candidates of GATE, UGC NET and other competitive exams.
It is possible for a computer to have multiple IP addresses.
IP packets form the same source to the same destination can take different routes in the network,
IP ensures that a packet is forwarded if it is unable to reach its destination within a given number of hopes.
The packet source cannot set the route of an outgoing packets, the route is determined only by the routing tables in the routers on the way.
Recovery from packet losses.
Detection of duplicate packets
Packet delivery in the correct order.
End to end connectivity
220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
10.35.28.2 and 10.35.29.4
22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
Both bridge and router selectively forward data packets.
A bridge uses IP addresses while router uses MAC addresses.
A bridge builds up its routing table by inspecting incoming packets.
A router can connect between a LAN and a WAN.
TCP guarantees a minimum communication rate.
TCP ensures in-order delivery.
TCP reacts to congestion by reducing sender window size.
TCP employs re-transmission to compensate for packet loss.
