CCNA 3 v7.0 Modules 1 – 2: OSPF Concepts and Configuration Exam Answers
1. What is a function of OSPF hello packets?
to send specifically requested link-state records
to discover neighbors and build adjacencies between them*
to ensure database synchronization between routers
to request specific link-state records from neighbor routers
2. Which OPSF packet contains the different types of link-state advertisements?
3. Which three statements describe features of the OSPF topology table? (Choose three.)
It is a link-state database that represents the network topology.*
