Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 177

.Which of the following characteristics are NOT shared by RIPv1 and RIPv2?

A. They share an administrative distance value
B. They use the same metric
C. They both send the subnet mask in routing updates
D. They have the same maximum hop count


Correct Answer: C

Explanation:
RIPv1 and RIPv2 do NOT both send the subnet mask in routing updates. RIPv1 is classful, while RIPv2 is classless. This means the RIPv1 does not send subnet mask information in
routing updates, while RIPv2 does.
Both versions have the same administrative distance of 120.
Both versions have the same metric, which is hop count.
Both versions have the same maximum hop count, which is 15.
Objective:
Routing Fundamentals
Sub-Objective:
Configure, verify, and troubleshoot RIPv2 for IPv4 (excluding authentication, filtering, manual summarization, redistribution)
