27. In what two situations would UDP be better than TCP as the preferred transport protocol? (Choose two.)

  • when applications need to guarantee that a packet arrives intact, in sequence, and unduplicated
  • when a faster delivery mechanism is needed
  • when delivery overhead is not an issue
  • when applications do not need to guarantee delivery of the data
  • when destination port numbers are dynamic

Explanation: UDP is a very simple transport layer protocol that does not guarantee delivery. Devices on both ends of the conversation are not required to keep track of the conversation. UDP is used as the transport protocol for applications that need a speedy, best-effort delivery.

28. The current IP configuration of a small company is done manually and is time-consuming. Because of increased network growth, a technician needs a simpler way for IP configuration of workstations. Which service would simplify the workstation IP configuration task?

  • APIPA
  • DHCP
  • DNS
  • ICMP

Explanation: In networks with more than a few hosts, DHCP simplifies the addressing process. A DHCP server automatically assigns host IP addresses.

29. A company is looking for a next-generation firewall that provides VPN functionality, IDS/IPS functionality, and DoS/DDoS protection. Which device would be best suited for this task?

  • multipurpose device
  • router
  • endpoint management server
  • UTM
  • TPM

Explanation: A universal threat management (UTM) device is a security device that can provide firewall, IDS/IPS, and proxy server functionality as well as email filtering and DoS/DDoS protection.

30. A student is helping a friend with a home computer that can no longer access the Internet. Upon investigation, the student discovers that the computer has been assigned the IP address 169.254.100.88. What could cause a computer to get such an IP address?

  • static IP addressing with incomplete information
  • interference from surrounding devices
  • reduced computer power supply output
  • unreachable DHCP server

Explanation: When a PC does not have a static IP address or cannot pick one up from a DHCP server, Windows will automatically assign the PC an IP address using APIPA, that uses the range of addresses 169.254.0.0 to 169.254.255.255.

31. What three values must be added to the IPv4 properties of a NIC in order for a computer to have basic connectivity with the network? (Choose three.)

  • subnet mask
  • DHCP server address
  • domain name
  • default gateway
  • speed and duplex
  • IP address

Explanation: The IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway address values should be added to the NIC properties in order for the computer to have basic network connectivity. This can be done either statically or dynamically with DHCP. An additional value that should be present if the computer is to be used to connect to the Internet is the DNS server value. A computer automatically attempts to locate a DHCP server if configured to do so. A DHCP server address is not used. Finally, NAT is configured on a router, not on a computer host, and speed and duplex settings are NIC hardware settings and not IPv4 properties of the NIC.

32. A device has an IPv6 address of 2001:0DB8:75a3:0214:0607:1234:aa10:ba01 /64. What is the host identifier of the device?

  • 2001:0DB8:75a3
  • 0607:1234:aa10:ba01
  • 2001:0DB8
  • ba01

Explanation: An IPv6 address is made up of 128 bits that are represented as eight blocks of four hexadecimal digits that are called hextets. Because each hexadecimal digit represents four bits, each hextet represents 16 bits. The /64 network prefix indicates that the first 64 bits, or first four hextets, represent the network portion of the address. Because there are 128 bits in an IPv6 address, this leaves the last 64 bits, or last four hextets, to represent the host identifier. The value for the last four hextets is 0607:1234:aa10:ba01.

33. How can a user prevent specific applications from accessing a Windows computer over a network?

  • Enable MAC address filtering.
  • Disable automatic IP address assignment.
  • Block specific TCP or UDP ports in Windows Firewall.
  • Change default usernames and passwords.

Explanation: Network applications have specific TCP or UDP ports that can be left open or blocked in Windows Firewall. Disabling automatic IP address assignment may result in the computer not being able to connect to the network at all. Enabling MAC address filtering is not possible in Windows and would only block specific network hosts, not applications. Changing default usernames and passwords will secure the computer from unauthorized users, not from applications.

34. Place the six stages of the troubleshooting process in the correct order.

35. A technician has been asked to configure Wi-Fi calling on a corporate mobile device. In which situation would this feature be most advantageous?

  • in an emergency situation and no minutes are left on the phone

Explanation: Because of the amount of data transferred during video synchronization, synchronization occurs through either a Wi-Fi connection or a wired USB connection.

40. A technician is explaining the differences between inkjet printers and laser printers to a customer. Which two comparisons should the technician make? (Choose two.)

  • Inkjet printers are less expensive as an initial purchase than laser printers.
  • A laser printer is significantly slower than an inkjet printer.
  • Both laser and inkjet printers produce poor quality images.
  • The laser printer output is dry after printing, but an inkjet printer may still have wet ink on the paper after printing.
  • Inkjet printers use plain paper to make economical prints, but laser printers require more expensive thermal paper.

41. A user chooses the collate option and prints two copies of a three-page document. What is the order in which the pages are printed?

  • pages 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3
  • pages 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3
  • pages 3, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1
  • pages 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1

Explanation: The collate feature enables a printer to sort multiple copies of a document with the proper page order for each copy.

42. A color laser printer is used to print documents with graphics and photographs. Users are complaining that printing takes too long. Which component of the printer should be upgraded in order to improve printing performance?

  • CPU
  • RAM
  • hard drive
  • toner cartridges

Explanation: Because documents with graphics and photographs generate much larger print jobs, the printing process will run more efficiently if the printer memory is adequate to store the entire job before the job starts.

43. What service is available for Windows to provide software print server services to MAC OS clients?

  • Bonjour Print Server
  • Print to XPS
  • Apple AirPort Extreme
  • Apple AirPrint

Explanation: Bonjour Printer Server from Apple comes with MAC OS X and is a free download for Windows users to be used as a software print server. Airport Extreme, a dedicated print server, and a PC with a printer attached serving as a print server are all hardware print sharing solutions.

44. Which three components are typically found in laser printer maintenance kits? (Choose three.)

  • fuser assembly
  • primary corona
  • pickup rollers
  • transfer rollers
  • secondary corona
  • paper trays

Explanation: Laser printer maintenance kits typically contain components that wear and can be installed with minimal disassembly of the printer. Corona wires are internal components that would require a trained technician to replace. Paper trays are components that are not typically replaced during maintenance, but would be replaced any time if damaged.

45. A technician is installing a new printer in a cool, damp environment. After the printer cabling is done, and the software and print driver are installed, the printer test page jams. What is the most likely cause of the print failure?

  • incorrect printer driver
  • too much humidity
  • not enough printer memory
  • loose printer cables

Explanation: Paper jams are commonly caused when the paper being used is dirty, affected by humidity, or is the wrong type of paper for the printer.

46. A data center has recently updated a physical server to host multiple operating systems on a single CPU. The data center can now provide each customer with a separate web server without having to allocate an actual discrete server for each customer. What is the networking trend that is being implemented by the data center in this situation?

  • BYOD
  • virtualization
  • maintaining communication integrity
  • online collaboration

Explanation: Virtualization technology can run several different operating systems in parallel on a single CPU.

47. How does virtualization help with disaster recovery within a data center?

  • Power is always provided.
  • Less energy is consumed.
  • Server provisioning is faster.
  • Hardware does not have to be identical.

Explanation: Disaster recovery is how a company goes about accessing applications, data, and the hardware that might be affected during a disaster. Virtualization provides hardware independence which means the disaster recovery site does not have to have the exact equipment as the equipment in production. Server provisioning is relevant when a server is built for the first time. Although data centers do have backup generators, the entire data center is designed for disaster recovery. One particular data center could never guarantee that the data center itself would never be without power.

48. Which two hypervisors are suitable to support virtual machines in a data center? (Choose two.)

  • Virtual PC
  • VMware Fusion
  • VMware ESX/ESXi
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox

Explanation: VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 are Type 1 hypervisors that have direct access to the hardware resources. Type 1 hypervisors are more efficient than hosted architectures, and enable greater scalability, performance, and robustness. They are used to support enterprise VMs in data centers. Oracle VM VirtualBox, VMware Fusion, and Microsoft Virtual PC are host based Type 2 hypervisors.

49. A web designer accesses a company Windows 10 computer remotely. The designer often needs to simultaneously open multiple applications, such as a web page editor and a graphics editor. Rather than opening them in multiple windows, the designer opens them in different virtual desktops. What technology is being used by the designer?

  • virtual reality
  • Windows Virtual Desktop
  • cloud-based applications
  • virtual desktop infrastructure

Explanation: Windows 10 has a feature called Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD). A user can create multiple virtual desktops and navigate among them easily. This feature reduces the clutter on a desktop of Windows caused by opening multiple applications. With WVD, a user can have each application open in a separate desktop.

50. Which Cloud computing service would be best for an organization that needs to collaboratively create applications and deliver them over the web?

  • PaaS

53. A technician is troubleshooting a server that displays the error message “RAID not found” after a power outage over the weekend. What is a possible cause for this?

  • The BIOS firmware needs updating.
  • The FSB settings have changed and are wrong.
  • The external RAID controller is not receiving power.
  • The CPU multiplier is set too high.

Explanation: The loss of the RAID controller can be caused by the external RAID controller not receiving power, incorrect BIOS settings, failure of the RAID controller or incorrect drivers for the RAID controller.

54. A customer brings in a laptop with a touch screen that is not working correctly. The touch screen either does not respond at all or provides unusual or inaccurate responses. What is a possible cause for such behavior?

  • The battery is not seated properly.
  • The DC jack is not grounded or is loose.
  • The digitizer is faulty.
  • Too many apps are open.

Explanation: A touch screen that is unresponsive or inaccurate can be caused by dirt or grease on the screen, the screen protector, or apps consuming too many resources.

55. What are two security risks associated with sharing printers in a corporate environment? (Choose two.)

  • user authentication
  • cached files
  • document viewing in the print queue
  • dumpster diving
  • shoulder surfing

Explanation: Three security concerns related to shared printers include (1) cached print files could contain sensitive data; (2) user authentication is needed to control access to the printer; and (3) print jobs could be read by others, intercepted, copied, or modified. Although the names of documents can be viewed in the print queue, document viewing is not possible. Dumpster diving and shoulder surfing are security concerns whether the printer is shared or not.

56. Which change management process component is concerned with the business processes that are affected by changes?

  • assessment
