What is IP class and number of sub-networks if the subnet mask is $255.224.0.0$?

1. Class $A$, $3$
2. Class $A$, $8$
3. Class $B$, $3$
4. Class $B$, $32$

255.224.0.0

gives no of 1's followed by no. of 0's

where 1 represent network portion

here no. of 1's = 11

so, NID +SID = 11

SID =11-NID

=11-8(class A)

=3 bits are used for subnets

no. of sub network= 2^3-2 =6

but 6 is not in the option so in that case we consider, no. of subnets as 2^3 which is 8

0
Though I also calculated answer to be option (b) but In answer key, answer given is option (A)

here 8 bit for network ( all 8 ones )

And 8 bit for network id belong to class A

And next 3 ones used for subnet . Since 3 ones so number of subnet is 2^3=8.
