9. The design of the Internet protocol suites adhere to the ________ principle.
a) Data corruption
b) Connection oriented
c) End to End principle
d) Reliability
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: The design of the Internet protocol suite adheres to the end-to-end principle, a concept adapted from the CYCLADES project. Under the end-to-end principle, the network infrastructure is considered inherently unreliable at any signal network element or transmission medium and is dynamic in terms of availability of links and nodes.

10. ___________ adjusts the segment size to be smaller than MTU.
a) Internet Protocol 6
b) User Datagram Protocol
c) Internet Protocol 4
