Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 166

.In the following partial output of the show ip route command, what does the letter D stand for?

D 192.1.2.0/24 via 5.1.1.71 [w:0 m:0]
C 192.8.1.1/32 directly connected to loopback 0

A. This is a default route
B. This is an EIGRP route
C. This is static route
D. This is a directly connected route


Correct Answer: B

Explanation:
The letter D indicates that it was a route learned by the EIGRP routing protocol. In the output of the show ip route command, each route will have a letter next to it that indicates the
method by which the route was learned. At the beginning of the output will be a legend describing the letters as shown below:
The letter does not indicate that it is a default route. The default route (if configured) will appear at the end of the legend as follows:
Gateway of last resort is 10.119.254.240 to network 10.140.0.0
The letter does not indicate that it is a static route. Static routes will have an “S” next to them.
The letter does not indicate that it is a directly connected route. Directly connected routes will have a “C” next to them.
