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


      =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

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

Best answer
Subnet mask is 11111111.11100000.00000000.00000000

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.

So answer is b

Given mask is

No. of 1's are 11.

So no. of subnetworks = (given mask - default mask)

                                  = 11- 8 = 3

 Answer is A.
