Free 100-101 Sample Question 23
Refer to the exhibit.
SwitchA receives the frame with the addressing shown. According to the command output also shown in the exhibit, how will SwitchA handle this frame?
A. It will drop the frame.
B. It will forward the frame out port Fa0/6 only.
C. It will flood the frame out all ports.
D. It will flood the frame out all ports except Fa0/3.
Correct Answer: B
If there is not MAC address of destination host in MAC table, switch sends broadcast to all ports except the source to find out the destination host. However, if the destination MAC is already in the MAC address table, as is the case here, then it will forward to that port only.
