1. Correct Answer A

Presentation Layer is the 6th Layer of OSI model. It is responsible for converting different formats to device understandable language at both ends.

 2. Correct Answer B

Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) is a networking protocol used by a host computer to request its IP address from an administrative host, when it knows its MAC address. 

 3. Correct Answer E

There are two types of configuration files on a router:

Running config - The configuration currently running on the router. Stored in RAM.
Startup config - Saved configuration stored in NVRAM.

To save the running configuration to the startup configuration use the following command.

Router# copy running-config startup-config  

Router# copy run start

 4. Correct Answer E

Trick question. IP provides no form of error correction / acknowledgements.

(Cisco loves trick questions....)

 5. Correct Answers


6.  Correct Answer C

To change the router configuration stored on TFTP you use configure network (config net)

 A couple of curly ones there, subnetting always seems to slow one down :-)
