4. Which three statements are generally considered to be best practices in the placement of ACLs? (Choose three.)

Place standard ACLs close to the source IP address of the traffic.

Place extended ACLs close to the destination IP address of the traffic.

Filter unwanted traffic before it travels onto a low-bandwidth link.*

Place extended ACLs close to the source IP address of the traffic.*

Place standard ACLs close to the destination IP address of the traffic.*

For every inbound ACL placed on an interface, there should be a matching outbound ACL.

5. Refer to the exhibit.

How is a frame sent from PCA forwarded to PCC if the MAC address table on switch SW1 is empty?

SW1 floods the frame on all ports on the switch, excluding the interconnected port to switch SW2 and the port through which the frame entered the switch.

SW1 floods the frame on all ports on SW1, excluding the port through which the frame entered the switch.*

SW1 forwards the frame directly to SW2. SW2 floods the frame to all ports connected to SW2, excluding the port through which the frame entered the switch.

SW1 drops the frame because it does not know the destination MAC address.

6. Which address prefix range is reserved for IPv4 multicast? – –* – –

7. Which statement describes a difference between the operation of inbound and outbound ACLs?

Inbound ACLs are processed before the packets are routed while outbound ACLs are processed after the routing is completed.*

On a network interface, more than one inbound ACL can be configured but only one outbound ACL can be configured.

21. Refer to the exhibit.

A network administrator is implementing the stateless DHCPv6 operation for the company. Clients are configuring IPv6 addresses as expected. However, the clients are not getting the DNS server address and the domain name information configured in the DHCP pool. What could be the cause of the problem?

The GigabitEthernet interface is not activated.

The router is configured for SLAAC operation.*

The DNS server address is not on the same network as the clients are on.

The clients cannot communicate with the DHCPv6 server, evidenced by the number of active clients being 0.
