Single Answer, Multiple Choice
A service provider has been assigned the 192.168.0.0/16 address. Which of the following addresses is a valid host address for the CIDR block 192.168.8.0/21?
The address 192.168.9.13 255.255.252.0 (or /22) is a valid address for the classless interdomain routing (CIDR) address 192.168.8.0/21.
CIDR enables a service provider to advertise a super-netted summary network address. If the service provider is assigned the 192.168.8.0 Class C address and the 255.255.252.0 network mask, they have more addresses available than if they were restricted to the 24-bit classful mask boundary. The service provider can then administer the new address space to its customers. The 192.168.9.13/22 address has the same first 21 bits the same as the 192.168.8.0/21 address.
The 192.168.8.64/28 address is an invalid host address. All host bits are off.
The 192.168.10.31/27 address is an invalid host address. All host bits are on.
The 192.168.16.111/24 address is a valid host address, but it does not reside in the 192.168.8.0/21 network.
