Discussion :: Spanning Tree Protocol - Spanning Tree Protocol (Q.No.4)

4. 

In which circumstance are multiple copies of the same unicast frame likely to be transmitted in a switched LAN?

[A]. During high-traffic periods
[B]. After broken links are reestablished
[C]. When upper-layer protocols require high reliability
[D]. In an improperly implemented redundant topology

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

If the Spanning Tree Protocol is not running on your switches and you connect them together with redundant links, you will have broadcast storms and multiple frame copies.
