3. Which factor classifies a host as a server?

  • the CPU speed
  • the software installed
  • the network connection
  • the amount of memory

Explanation: A server is a host with server software installed. Although CPU, memory, and the network connection will determine the performance of a server, it is the server software that provides desired server services.

4. Which term is used to describe a network device that relies on another device to obtain information?

  • console
  • client
  • web server
  • server

Explanation: A client device has software installed which enables it to request the required service from a server device.
