How many broadcast domains are created when you segment a network with a 12-port switch?
Answer: Option A
By default, switches break up collision domains but are one large broadcast domain.

|A broadcast domain is a logical division of a computer network, in which all nodes can reach each other by broadcast at the data link layer. A broadcast domain can be within the same LAN segment or it can be bridged to other LAN segments.
In terms of current popular technologies: Any computer connected to the same Ethernet repeater or switch is a member of the same broadcast domain. Further, any computer connected to the same set of inter-connected switches/repeaters is a member of the same broadcast domain. Routers and other higher-layer devices form boundaries between broadcast domains.
This is as compared to a collision domain, which would be all nodes on the same set of inter-connected repeaters, divided by switches and learning bridges. Collision domains are generally smaller than, and contained within, broadcast domains.

|The broadcast domain is a security best division of a computer network, in which all computers are divided by a domain. It is used for transfer data from one department to another department securely.|
