You have a network with a subnet of 172.16.17.0/22. Which is the valid host address?
172.16.17.1 255.255.255.252
172.16.0.1 255.255.240.0
172.16.20.1 255.255.254.0
172.16.18.255 255.255.252.0
Answer: Option
Explanation:
A Class B network ID with a /22 mask is 255.255.252.0, with a block size of 4 in the third octet. The network address in the question is in subnet 172.16.16.0 with a broadcast address of 172.16.19.255. Only option E even has the correct subnet mask listed, and 172.16.18.255 is a valid host.

According to the question, 172.16.17.0/22 this is given but while solving u said in question 172.16.16.0 is used which makes only option D as a correct answer but as per real question, both A & D can be right.

As per question, we need valid host address and the correct option is D, can you explain how 172.16.18.255 is valid host address?
