Explanation:
Layer 2 of the OSI reference model is the data-link layer. Components of the data-link layer include frame-format, Media Access Control (MAC) addressing, protocol
identification and error detection.
When data is being sent, it is split into protocol data units (PDUs) as it passes through the layers of the OSI model. The PDUs have different names as they are
passed through the layers of the OSI model. In layer 2, the PDU is called a ‘Frame’.
The most common protocol specified in the data-link layer is Ethernet and the most common network component in the data-link layer is a network switch.
In this question, problems are discovered with Ethernet frames by examining the logs in a network switch. Therefore, for this question, we are working in Layer 2,
the data-link layer.
