11 - IP Address Structure

 1. An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a __________________ assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.

  string based label

  label created out of only 1s and 0s (other numbers cannot be used)

  numerical label

  hexadecimal label

 2. An IP address serves two principal functions:

   host or network interface identification and location addressing

  sending messages to open ports and acting as a firewall to block unauthorised packets

  assigning domain names and directly routing packets (e.g. doing the job of a router)

  routing packets to a DNS server and network interface identification

 3. It is possible to have several hundred devices assigned to one IP address. As long as this number is not over 10,000 no IP conflict will occur.



 4. IP conflicts occur because packets are __________________between devices with the same IP address.

  None of the above

  distributed evenly

  distributed randomly

  not distributed

 5. All IP addresses are made up of _____________________ seperated by dots representing a 32-bit binary address.

  3 quadrants

  1 quadrant

  4 quadrants

  2 quadrants

 6. Take the company ' and imagine they had a LAN with three devices on it. (as follows)


The company's IP is in the first three quadrants and the final 
quadrant is for ____________________________________

  the company's binary sequence (equivalent IP address)

  the device itself

  the scanner (another device)

  None of the above

 7. Which of the following is NOT a valid IP address?


 8. An IP address is represented in the form of 32 binary bits. The bits are divided into:

  four groups of three individual bits

  three groups of 8 individual bits

   four groups of 8 individual bits

  three groups of 2 individual bits

 9. The following IP address is an example of what class of IP address?

  class B

  class A

  class X

  class C

 10. The following IP address is an example of what class of IP address?

  class A

  class B

  class C

  class X
