1. False
2. True

There is only one medium and that is shared by many hosts or half dulex and you want to transmit data then you can transmit by two ways

1st. just transmit your data without thinking.this  approach is contention-based in which there are high chances some collision will occur with some other host transmitting. example ALOHA is contention based protocol

2nd Transmit only if it is your turn to transmit.This is contention-Free approach ( contention-less ),  you wait for your turn and are allowed to transmit only when you are up. contention free protocol don't allow posssibility of colliding frame.

The data link layer functionality is usually split it into logical sub-layers, the upper sub-layer, termed as LLC, that interacts with the network layer above and the lower sub-layer, termed as MAC, that interacts with the physical layer.

The primary responsibilities of LLC are:

1. Network Layer protocol Multiplexing/De-Multiplexing

2. Logical Link Services ( Connectionless , Connectionl oriented)

The primary responsibilities of mac are:

1. Framing/De-Framing and interaction with PHYSICAL LAYER

2. Collision Resolution

1. False
2. True

DDL is divided into two layers MAC and LLC.
MAC is used to control medium access in case of shared transmission media.
LLC used in flow control , error control,etc.
what is the meaning of contention less here ?
Contentionless means that there cannot be any collisions.
Thanks !

Two peer processes A(sender) and B(receiver) use 'stop-and-wait ARQ to send packets over a Single link with capacity C. All packets have the same length of 100 bits. The round-trip time (which is the time until A receives an acknowledgment for a sent packet) is equal to 2 seconds. Assume that ... with which process A sends data to process B? (a) 34.47 bps (b) 49.97 bps c) 51.45 bps (d) 67.75 bps

A geosynchronous satellite has a half-duplex channel with a transmission rate of 10 kbps and a propagation delay of 0.25 sec each way. With a data packet size of 1000 bits and a loss probability p of 0.001 ,(A) what is the expected transmission time of a packet ... all other parameters are the same as part (a), what is the longest channel propagation delay for which we can still use stop-and-wait?
