5 Comments on “Which statement is true?”
As a result of provided information answer is B.
Route is not marked as down in order to disable the attached bit on R4 and R5.
Answer should be A, reason : when route cross the boundary from level 2 to level 1, it will be marked as down. THis is a way to prevent loop – so that any route marked as down should NOT be re-advertised back up from level 1 to 2.
area 2 routes must be leaked to area1 other-vise they appears down….A is correct answer.
correction L2 ==>> L1 level 2 to Level1
Correct answer is B. Reference below RFC and search for “The up/down Bit”
The down mark is for going up a tier, for example level 1 back to level 2 distribution to prevent loops
