Which of the following are unique characteristics of half-duplex Ethernet when compared to full-duplex Ethernet?

  1. Half-duplex Ethernet operates in a shared collision domain.
  2. Half-duplex Ethernet operates in a private collision domain.
  3. Half-duplex Ethernet has higher effective throughput.
  4. Half-duplex Ethernet has lower effective throughput.

A. 2 only
B. 1,2 and 3
C. 1 and 4
D. 4 only

Answer: Option C


Unlike full duplex, half-duplex Ethernet operates in a shared collision domain, and it has a lower effective throughput than full duplex.
