17. A sender sends a series of packets to the same destination using 5-bit sequence
numbers. If the sequence number starts with 0, what is the sequence number after

yes its true ,answer will be 4 of for 101th packet.

as 5 bit sequence number so tatal sequence number =2^5=32 (0-31)

0-31 (32)




so after sending 96 packets ,sequence number of next sending packets will be 0,1,2.3.4 so 101th packet sequence number will be 4

Since it is 5-bit sequence number starting with 0, =====>sequence number for 1st packet = 0

i.e., sequence number ranges from 00000 to 11111 ====> 0 to 31 

sequence number for 101th packet = sequence number for (101 % 32)th packet i.e., 5th packet = 4.
