Which statement is false?

  1. PING is a TCP/IP application that sends datagrams once every second in the hope of an echo response from the machine being PINGED
  2. If the machine is connected and running a TCP/IP protocol stack, it should respond to the PING datagram with a datagram of its own
  3. If PING encounters an error condition, an ICMP message is not returned

PING uses ICMP to check connectivity of host to Internet(IP) layer. It send message to host computer to destination computer and then echoed back from destination to host computer. It also checks RTT. So, If it is not echoed back then there must be some error

Try once more....definitely you can
