CCNA Exam Prep Question of the Week

You type the following on your router:

(config)#interface fa0/0
(config-if)#ip address 10.1.17.0 255.255.240.0

What will appear in the routing table?

  1. A static route to 10.1.16.0.
  2. A static route to 10.1.17.0.
  3. A connected route to 10.1.16.0.
  4. A connected route to 10.1.17.0.

 

The correct answer is 3.

The routing table will have a connected route to 10.1.16.0. It is connected directly to the router; it is not a static route via another router. The router calculates that the given address is on subnet 10.1.16.0/20; it has host bits 0001 00000000.
