    1. Application layer
    2. Presentation layer
    3. Session layer
    4. Network layer
    5. Datalink layer
  3. The IEEE subdivided the datalink layer to provide for environments that need connectionless or connection-oriented services. What are the two layers called?
    1. Physical
    2. MAC
    3. LLC
    4. Session

    2. Session layer
    3. Transport layer
    4. Presentation layer
  5. Which is the best definition of encapsulation?
    1. Each layer of the OSI model uses encryption to put the PDU from the upper layer into its data field. It adds header and trailer information that is available to its counterpart on the system that will receive it.
    2. Data always needs to be tunneled to its destination so encapsulation must be used.
    3. Each layer of the OSI model uses compression to put the PDU from the upper layer into its data field. It adds header and trailer information that is available to its counterpart on the system that will receive it.
    4. Each layer of the OSI model uses encapsulation to put the PDU from the upper layer into its data field. It adds header and trailer information that is available to its counterpart on the system that will receive it.

  9. Which commands will display the active configuration parameters?
    1. show running-config
    2. write term
    3. show version
    4. display term

    1. It disables domain name lookup.
    2. It sets the domain name lookup to be a local broadcast.
    3. This is an illegal command.
    4. The command is now defunct and has been replaced by “IP server-name ip any”
