Hi everybody,


I have come across another confusing question and i am not able to understand how choice 'C' has been selected as the right answer.

I have attached the screenshot of the problem. I'll be very grateful if someone can advise me on this.

It is NOT possible to assign two IP Addresses to a Router, which are on THE SAME network.


The function of a Router is to forward traffic from one Network to a DIFFERENT network.

really bad example.  what the diagram is trying to say, and failing miserably, is you can't have two gateways on a lan/subnet.


but I can draw the same diagram of my router going to my two switches which works perfectly.  of course the router is at .1 and each switch would be at .2 and .3 if managed.


routing would be done between the isp subnet and the lan subnet not between the two lan interfaces.


there is no redundancy in the design which was the point

I would cringe if I had this teacher. It looks like they are using templates from other tests and changing a few things. Univ of Phoenix?
