Best answer

first Ip-128.75.43.16

subnet mask given as 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.128

=>(128.75.43.16 )&(255.255.255.0)=128.75.43.0

=>(128.75.43.16 )&(255.255.255.128)=>128.75.43.0

here we are getting two net id with different subnet mask so take that one which has greater subnet mask(means more number of 1's)=>Eth 1


second ip-144.16.68.117

subnet mask given as 255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.224

=>(144.16.68.117)&(255.255.255.0)=144.16.68.0(matches with Eth 2)

=>(144.16.68.117)&(255.255.255.224)=144.16.68.96(not matches)

hence this implies Eth 2

so option (d) is correct.
