ccna exam q7 b

A. Exhibit A
B. Exhibit B
C. Exhibit C
D. Exhibit D
E. Exhibit E
F. Exhibit F

Correct Answer: A
Section: Operation of IP Data Networks

Explanation:
Host A knows host B is in another network so it will send the pings to its default gateway 192.168.6.1. Host A sends a broadcast frame asking the MAC address of 192.168.6.1.
This information (IP and MAC address of the default gateway) is saved in its ARP cache for later use.
