ICND1 – OSI Model
Question 1
Which OSI layer header contains the address of a destination host that is on another network?
A. application
B. session
C. transport
D. network
E. data link
F. physical
Answer: D
Question 2
At which layer of the OSI model does the protocol that provides the information that is displayed by
the show cdp neighbors command operate?
A. application
B. transport
C. network
D. physical
E. data link
Answer: E
CDP runs at Layer 2 (Data Link) of the OSI model -> E is correct.
Question 3
What are two common TCP applications? (Choose two)
Answer: B D
SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. It’s a set of communication guidelines that allow
software to transmit email over the Internet while File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network
protocol used to transfer files from one host to another host over TCP-based network.
Note: Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) uses UDP as the transport protocol for passing
data between managers and agents. SNMP uses UDP to help reduce the impact on your network’s
performance. Although SNMP can be configured to run on TCP but we should only do it in special
situations. SNMP uses the UDP port 161 for sending and receiving requests, and port 162 for receiving
traps from managed devices.
DNS work on both the TCP and UDP protocols. DNS uses TCP for zone exchanges between servers and
UDP when a client is trying to
resolve a hostname to an IP address. Therefore in most cases we say “DNS uses UDP”.
Question 4
Which two characteristics describe the access layer of the hierarchical network design model? (Choose
A. layer 3 support
B. port security
C. redundant components
E. PoE
Answer: B D
The primary function of an access-layer is to provide network access to the end user.
The hardware and software attributes of the access layer that support high availability include security
services for additional security against unauthorized access to the network through the use of tools
such as 802.1x, port security, DHCP snooping, Dynamic ARP Inspection, and IP Source Guard.
Question 5
Which layer of the TCP/IP stack combines the OSI model physical and data link layers?
A. Internet layer
B. transport layer
C. application layer
D. network access layer
Answer: D
The picture below compares the two TCP/IP and OSI models:
Question 6
Which layer of the OSI model controls the reliability of communications between network devices
using flow control, sequencing and acknowledgments?
A. Physical
B. Data-link
C. Transport
D. Network
Answer: C
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) has all the features mentioned above and TCP resides in
Transport Layer (Layer 4) of the OSI model.
Flow control: A methodology used to ensure that receiving units are not overwhelmed with data from
sending devices when buffers at a receiving unit are full, a message is transmitted to the sending unit
to temporarily halt trans-missions until all the data in the receiving buffer has been processed and the
buffer is again ready for action.
Sequencing: is used to number segments before sending so they can be put back together again in
the correct order at the receiving side.
Acknowledgment: When the receiver gets the data, it sends a response telling the sender that the
data have been safely arrived.
Question 7
Which network device functions only at Layer 1 of the OSI model?
Answer: B
In CCNA, the popular devices operate in Layer 1 are hub and repeater.
