Which command can be used from a PC to verify the connectivity between hosts that connect through a switch in the same LAN?

A. ping address

B. tracert address

C. traceroute address

D. arp address

Correct Answer: A

Section: IP Addressing / VLSM

Explanation

Explanation/Reference:

In the same LAN means that we don’t need to cross through a router, while rules out any traceroute command (B, C). The arp command only shows if we have

previously received a frame from that address, not if connectivity is still OK, so not D. We need the ping command to send an ICMP packet to the host and receive

a reply for it.
