Wireless & Mobile Communications Questions & Answers – Network Protocols

This set of Wireless & Mobile Communications Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Network Protocols”.

1. Several protocols for upper layers in bluetooth use _________
a) UDP
b) HSP
c) ITC
d) L2CAP
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: L2CAP is Logical Link, Control Adaptation Protocol Layer. The logical unit link control adaptation protocol is equivalent to logical link control sub layer of LAN. The ACL link uses L2CAP for data exchange. The various function of L2CAP is segmentation and reassembly, multiplexing and quality of service.

2. Protocols are set of rules to govern _________
a) Communication
b) Standard
c) Metropolitan communication
d) Bandwidth
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: A protocol is a set of rules that governs the communications between computers on a network. These rules include guidelines that regulate the characteristics of a network including access method, allowed physical topologies, types of cabling, and speed of data transfer.

3. An internet is a __________
a) Collection of WANS
b) Network of networks
c) Collection of LANS
d) Collection of identical LANS and WANS
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Internet is a massive network of networks, a networking infrastructure. It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as they are both connected to the Internet.

4. Checksum is used in Internet by several protocols although not at the _________
a) Session layer
b) Transport layer
c) Network layer
d) Data link layer
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The checksum is used in the Internet by several protocols although not at the data link layer. Like linear and cyclic codes, the checksum is based on the concept of redundancy. Several protocols still use the checksum for error detection.

5. In version field of IPv4 header, when machine is using some other version of IPv4 then datagram is __________
a) Discarded
b) Accepted
c) Interpreted
d) Interpreted incorrectly
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: A 4 bit field defines the version of IPv4 protocol. This field tells the software running in the processing machine that the datagram has the format of version 4. If the machine is using some other version of IPv4, the datagram is discarded rather than interpreted incorrectly.

6. Network layer at source is responsible for creating a packet from data coming from another ________
a) Station
b) Link
c) Node
d) Protocol
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: ‘The network layer at the source is responsible for creating a packet from the data coming from another’ protocol (such as a transport layer protocol or a routing protocol). The network layer is responsible for checking its routing table to find the routing information.

7. Header of datagram in IPv4 has _________
a) 0 to 20 bytes
b) 20 to 40 bytes
c) 20 to 60 bytes
d) 20 to 80 bytes
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: IP header length is a minimum of 20 bytes and a maximum of 60 bytes. The minimum value for this field is 5, which is a length of 5×32 = 160 bits = 20 bytes. Being a 4-bit value, the maximum length is 15 words (15×32 bits) or 480 bits = 60 bytes.

8. In IPv4 layer, datagram is of ________
a) Fixed length
b) Variable length
c) Global length
d) Zero length
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: ‘IPv4 is a connectionless protocol used for packet switched networks. It operates on best effort delivery model, in which neither delivery is guaranteed, nor proper sequencing or avoidance of duplicate delivery is assured. The size of the datagram header can be of variable length from 20 bytes to 60 bytes.’

9. In IPv4, service type of service in header field, first 3 bits are called ______
a) Type of service
b) Code bits
c) Sync bits
d) Precedence bits
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The 8-bit ToS (type of service) in IPv4 uses 3 bits for IP Precedence, 4 bits for ToS with the last bit not being used. The 4-bit ToS field, although defined, has never been used.

10. Which is a link layer protocol?
a) ARP
b) TCP
c) UDP
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: ‘In computer networking, the link layer is the lowest layer in the Internet Protocol Suite. It is commonly known as TCP/IP, the networking architecture of the Internet. It is described in RFC 1122 and RFC 1123.’

11. Which protocol is commonly used to retrieve email from a mail server?
a) FTP
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: ‘The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is a mail protocol used for accessing email on a remote web server from a local client. IMAP is the most commonly used Internet mail protocols for retrieving emails. It is supported by all modern email clients and web servers.’
