Option B.

In the TCP/IP protocol stack,addressing is specified by ip.The ip standard specifies that each host is assigned a unique 32 bit number which is known as host's ip adress or internet address.Each packet sent across internet contains the 32 bit ip address of the source as well as the destination.

Internet address is nothing but 32 bit IP address.

So answer will be 32 bit used by TCP.

48 = 32 bit(IP) + 16 bit(PORT NO.)

port no is not network address.

ip+port is socket addresing
