1. Correct Answer: A
VLANs act as if they are different networks.  So communication between VLANs require routers.

2. Correct Answer: A
A triggered update is sent immediately in response to a change in the network (e.g. A link going down). The router detecting the change immediately sends an update message to its adjacent routers, which then generate their own triggered updates. This process continues until the network converges. Triggered updates occurs independently from the regular routing updates and are intended to speed the convergence process.

3. Correct Answer: E
Trick question. IP provides NO form of error correction/acknowledgements.

4. Correct Answer: C
Here in the question the A is administrative distance 110 for OSPF, B is 1 for Static Route, D is 90 for Internal EIGRP, E is 100 for IGRP so the last C is 120 for RIP.

5. Correct Answer: B
config mem executes configuration commands stored in NVRAM by copying startup-config to the running-config

6. Correct Answer: B
Extended access lists are much more granular than standard ACLs, you can block specific ports or protocols. To avoid unnecessary traffic on your network place them as close to the source as possible.
