»

This set of Computer Fundamentals Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Network Topologies”.

1. A topology that is responsible for describing the geometric arrangement of components that make up the LAN.
a) Complex
b) Physical
c) Logical
d) Incremental

Explanation: It is referred to as a physical LAN topology. LAN stands for Local Area Network.

2. Bus is a type of topology.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: The statement is true. Bus topology is an arrangement where all nodes are interconnected using a single-cable.

3. _____ LAN topology describes the possible connections between pairs of networked end-points that can communicate.
a) Complex
b) Physical
c) Logical
d) Incremental

Explanation: A logical LAN topology describes the possible connections. LAN stands for Local Area Network.

4. A term that refers to the way in which the nodes of a network are linked together.
a) network
b) topology
c) connection
d) interconnectivity

Explanation: Topology is a term that refers to the way in which the nodes are connected. There are 4 major topology networks.

5. A network comprising o multiple topologies.
a) Complex
b) Hybrid
c) Bus
d) Star

Explanation: A hybrid network consists of multiple topologies. It can comprise a ring, a star and other topologies. We call this arrangement as a hybrid network.

6. The participating computers in a network are referred to as:
a) Clients
b) Servers
c) Nodes
d) CPUs

Explanation: They are referred to as the nodes. There are several topologies designed for arrangements of these nodes like bus, star, etc.

7. A topology that involves Tokens.
a) Star
b) Ring
c) Bus
d) Daisy Chaining

Explanation: Ring topology involves sending and receiving of data with the help of tokens. Ring started out as a simple peer-to-peer LAN topology.

8. A ____________WAN can be developed using leased private lines or any other transmission facility
a) Hybrids
b) peer-to-peer
c) Two-tiered
d) Three-tiered

Explanation: A peer-to-peer WAN topology is a relatively simple way of interconnecting a small number of sites. It has the least-cost solution for WANs that contain a small number of internetworked locations.

9. A serially connected system of all the hubs of networks.
a) Bus
b) Ring
c) Daisy chains
d) Star

Explanation: The correct option is Daisy chain. This simple approach uses ports on existing hubs for interconnecting the hubs.

10. A piece of information which is sent along with the data to the source computer.
a) data
b) module
c) token
d) element

Explanation: Token is the information that is sent to the source computer along with the data. This token is then passed to the next node.
