CCNA 1 Module 1 Exploration 4.0 : Cisco Questions and Answers with Explanation

Updated on July 13, 2011

CCNA stands for Cisco Certified Network Associate. This page contains the examination questions and answers of CCNA 1 Module 1 of CCNA Exploration 4.0. All the questions are taken form different pay-sites, blogs and webpages which are offering several question sets. This page doesn't contain 100% actual question. The questions of CCNA are changing continuously. But don't feel sorrow. I think you will get 50% to 100% questions form here in your examination. All the questions and answers are explained here very carefully. You may put comment if you feel that some of the answers are wrong and may helps people to learn the correct one.

Question No. 01

The console port can be used for which of the following? (Choose three.)

  1. debugging.
  2. password recovery.
  3. routing data between networks.
  4. troubleshooting.
  5. connecting one router to another.

Answer:

Correct answer: 1, 2 and 4
Explanation: By using router console port you can configure router, can set password and recover password, troubleshooting etc. So, options 1, 2 and 4 are the correct answers. But to route data between networks, you need to define routing protocol. So, option 3 is incorrect. To connect one router to another you need a physical medium. There is no use of console port. So, option 5 is incorrect.

Question No. 02

Select the statements that correctly describe flash memory in a 2600 series router? (Choose two.)

  1. holds the startup configuration by default.
  2. can be upgraded with single in-line memory modules.
  3. stores Cisco IOS software images.
  4. stores routing table information by default.
  5. maintains the only copy of an IOS image after the router is booted.

Answer:

Correct answer: 2 and 3
Explanation: Flash memory is an erasable, programmable read-only memory which holds operating system image and microcode. It allows software to be updated without removing any chips and content remain when powered down pr restart. For this reason, 2 and 3 are the correct answers.

Question No. 03

Which of the following are functions of NVRAM? (Choose two.)

  1. stores the routing table.
  2. retains contents when power is removed.
  3. stores the startup configuration file.
  4. contains the running configuration file.
  5. stores the ARP table.

Answer:

Correct answer: 2 and 3
Explanation: NVRAM stores the backup/startup configuration file for the router. It retains conten when the router is powered down or restarted.

Question 04.

Which of the following descriptions are true regarding the management connections on a Cisco router? (Choose three.)

  1. They are non-network connections.
  2. They are used to connect the router to the rest of the production network.
  3. They are synchronous serial ports.
  4. They are used for initial router configuration.
  5. They are asynchronous serial ports.
  6. They are accessed using their assigned IP address.

Answers:

Correct answer: 1, 2 and 4
Explanation: Management connections of Cisco router are used to configuration router. These are non-network connections. So, option 1, 2 and 4 are the correct answers. Option 3 and 4 are not correct because it's not a synchronous or asynchronous serial ports. Management connections has no IP address. So, option 6 is not also the correct answer. So, options 1, 2 and 4 are the correct answers.

Question No. 05

An internetwork must include which of the following? (Choose three.)

  1. switching.
  2. static addressing.
  3. IETF standardization.
  4. dynamic or static routing.
  5. consistent end-to-end addressing.

Answer:

Correct answer: 1, 4 and 5
Explanation: Internetwork includes switching, dynamic or static routing and it's capable of addressing at the end-to-end addressing. So, option 1, 4 and 5 are correct. Internetwork doesn't include IETF standardization or static addressing.

Question No. 06

Which of the following are functions of RAM? (Choose three.)

  1. contains startup configuration file.
  2. stores routing table.
  3. holds fast switching cache.
  4. retains contents when power is removed.
  5. stores running configuration file.

Answer:

Correct answer: 2, 3 and 5
Explanation: Cisco RAM has the following characteristics:

  • stores routing information
  • address resolution protocol (ARP)
  • fast-switching cache
  • packet buffering
  • packet hold queues
  • RAM contents are lost if power is down or restarted
  • provides temporary running memory.

For the above reasons, 2, 3 and 5 options are correct.

  4. a rollover cable between the console port on a router and a switch.
  5. straight-through cables between a switch and hosts on a LAN.
  6. a straight-through cable between the transceiver on a router and a switch.

Answer:

Correct answer: 5 and 6
Explanation:
Straight-through cables are used for the following types of cabling:

  • switch to router
  • switch to PC or server
  • hub to PC or server

Crossover cables are used for the following types of cabling:

  • switch to switch
  • PC to PC
  • hub to hub
  • router to router
  • router to PC
