# Delays and Loss - Computer Networks Questions and Answers

1.

Which of the following delay is faced by the packet in travelling from one end system to another ?

A.) Propagation delay
B.) Queuing delay
C.) Transmission delay
D.) All of the mentioned

All of the mentioned

2.

The time required to examine the packet’s header and determine where to direct the packet is part of

A.) Processing delay
B.) Queuing delay
C.) Transmission delay
D.) All of the mentioned

Processing delay

3.

In the transfer of file between server and client, if the transmission rates along the path is 10Mbps, 20Mbps, 30Mbps, 40Mbps. The throughput is usually

A.) 20Mbps
B.) 10Mbps
C.) 40Mbps
D.) 50Mbps

The throughput is generally the transmission rate of bottleneck link.

4.

The total nodal delay is given by

A.) dnodal = dproc – dqueue + dtrans + dprop
B.) dnodal = dproc + dtrans – dqueue
C.) dnodal = dproc + dqueue + dtrans + dprop
D.) dnodal = dproc + dqueue – dtrans – dprop

dnodal = dproc + dqueue + dtrans + dprop

5.

Transmission delay does not depend on

A.) Packet length
B.) Distance between the routers
C.) Transmission rate
D.) None of these

Distance between the routers

6.

Propagation delay depends on

A.) Packet length
B.) Transmission rate
C.) Distance between the routers
D.) None of the mentioned

Propagation delay is the time it takes a bit to propagate from one router to the next.

7.

A.) Propogation delay
B.) Queuing delay
C.) Transmission delay
D.) Processing delay

Queuing delay

8.

If end to end delay is given by dend-end = N(dproc + dtrans + dprop) is a non congested network. The number of routers between source and destination is

A.) N/2
B.) N
C.) N-1
D.) 2N

N-1

9.

A.) La/R
B.) LR/a
C.) R/La
D.) None of these

La/R

10.

For a 10Mbps Ethernet link, if the length of the packet is 32bits, the transmission delay is(in milliseconds)

A.) 3.2
B.) 32
C.) 0.32
D.) None of these
