Network Cable Quiz Answers 1. RJ-45 connectors are used with ? 1) coax2) Fiber-optic3) 1000Base-LX4) 10BASE-T Correct answer: 10BASE-T 2. 10Base-2 is also reffered as ? 1) Thicknet2) Thinnet3) unshielded twisted-pair4) Category 3 Correct answer : Thinnet 3. 1000Base-SX is a Fiber-optic cable. 1) True2) False Correct answer : True 4. A BNC barrel connector, is used to connect two cables together,and increase the signal strength. 1) True2) False Correct answer: False Explanation: It is better to use one continuous length of cable, as these connectors weaken the signal stren gth.
5. Token Ring networks usually use coax cables. 1) True2) False Correct answer: False 6. 1000Base-T is not a Category 5 cable. 1) True2) False Correct answer: False 7. A BNC connector is for ? 1) coaxial2) Fiber-optic3) Category 54) 10Base-T Correct answer: coaxial Explanation: A BNC connector for coaxial cables. These are either soldered, or crimped to the end of the cable. 8. SC and ST connectors can be used in the same network with theuse of adapters or couplers 1) True2) False Correct answer: True 9. The maximum segment length of 100Base-FX at half duplex is ? 1) 200 meters2) 412 meters3) 1000 meters4) 2000 meters Correct answer: 412 meters 10. The maximum transfer speed of 10Base-5 is ?
1) 100 Mbps2) 2 Mbps3) 1 Gbps4) 10 Mbps Correct answer: 10 Mbps 11. Fiber networks use what kind of connectors ? 1) SC2) BNC3) RJ-454) RJ-11 Correct answer: SC Explanation: In the North America, most cables use a square SC connector that slides and locks into place when inserted into a node orconnected to another fiber cable, Europeans use a round ST connectorinstead. 12. RJ-45 connectors resemble telephone RJ-11 connectors, but arelarger and house 12 wires. 1) True2) False Correct answer: False Explanation: RJ-45 connectors are used with 10-100BaseT cables. These resemble telephone RJ-11 connectors, but are larger and house 8wires while RJ-11 house 4 or 6 wires. They are connected to the cableby crimping. 13. Standard telephone cable connectors, usually have 4-6 wires. 1) True2) False Correct answer: True 14. STP cable protects signals from cross signaling that can resultfrom other, nearby cables.
1) True2) False Correct answer: True 15. The maximum segment length of 10Base-5 is ? 1) 500 m2) 100 m3) 2000 m4) 187 m Correct answer: 500 m 16. SC and ST connectors offer the same features as far asdistance and reliability. 1) True2) False Correct answer: True
