FDDI and Token Ring used which LAN physical topology?
WHich of the following phsical topologies has the most connections and is the least popular in LANs?
In a physical star topology what happens when a workstation loses its physical connection to another device?
a) The ring is broken so no devices can communicate
b) Only that workstation loses its ability to communicate
c) That workstation and the device its connected to lose communication with the rest of the network.
d) No devices can communicate because there are now two un-terminated network segments
Which network topology is most closely associated with classical CSMA/CD ?

Which of the following is an example of when a point-to-multipoint network is called for?
a) When a centralized office needs to communicate with many branch offices.
b) When a full mesh of WAN links is in place.
c) When multiple offices are daisy chained to one another in a line.
d) WHen there are only two nodes in the network to be connected.
Which of the following is an example of a LAN?
a) Ten buildings interconnected by Ethernet connections over fiber-optic cabling.
b) Ten routers interconnnected by frame-relay circuits.
c) Two routers interconnected with a T1 circuit.
d) A computer connected to another computer so they can share resources.
Which of the following is a disadvantage of the start topology?
a) When a port on the central concentrating device fails, the attached end device loses connectivity to the rest of the network.
b) When the central concentrating device experiences a complete failure, all attached devices lose connectivity to the rest of the network.
c) In a star topology, a more expensive type of host must be used when compared to the host used when implementing a physical bus.
d) It is more difficult to add stations and troubleshoot than with other topologies.
