Q:

You are the network administrator and are given the tasks to plan for the future expansion of the network. You decide to subnet the current network of 172.15.0.0. What will be the subnet mask be if every subnet has to allocate 500 hosts.

A) 255.255.0.0 B) 255.0.0.0
C) 255.255.240.0 D) 255.255.254.0

Answer:   D) 255.255.254.0

Explanation:

Explanation: The requirement of having to allocate 500 hosts on each subnet can be achieved by the following: 2^9 = 512. So deducting the broadcast and network address we have 510 possible hosts on each subnet. We used 9 bits to allocate the hosts, this leaves us 7 bits for possible subnets. Those 7 bits in binary is 1111 1110 or 254 in decimal.

Q:

The network with ip address 192.168.100.0/27 is to be used on a router. If ip subnet-zero is configured, which statement describe the resulting number of available subnets and hosts?

A) 7 usable subnets, each with 32 host addresses B) 8 usable subnets, each with 30 host addresses
C) 8 usable subnets, each with 27 host addresses D) 7 usable subnets, each with 24 host addresses
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 8 usable subnets, each with 30 host addresses

Explanation:

Because subnet zero is configured and we have a class C address (192.168.100.0) then the network portion will have 3 bits so 8 subnets will be available. The rest of the bits, 5, represent the available hosts, so 2^5=32, but only 30 are available, 0 ad 31 are network and broadcast respectively.
