Consider a TCP connection using the multiplicative additive congestion control algorithm where the window size is 1 MSS and the threshold is 32 MSS. At the $8^{th}$ transmission timeout occurs and enters in the congestion detection phase. The value of the window size (in MSS) at the end of $12^{th}$ transmission is ______.

Ans given 8 but I got 16.

Though there are numerous questions of this sort being posted here on GO. But since my answer didn’t match with them, I wanted to clarify.

It says at the end of $12^{th}$ transmission. So we have to take the window size after the 12 RTTs right and not at 12th RTT?

supporting to aambazinga,

there may be chance of TO or 3 duplicates, then sender window changes

∴ we have to return the window size at 12th transmission if it ask what is the window size at end of 12 th transmission.

or may be not.

so both answers should be correct.(8 and 16).

gate question will either mention it clearly or they will provide a range in the answer.
