I am preparing my 350-001. Here is a sample question. Which one do you think is the correct answer?
You are deciding which routing protocol to implement on your network. When weighing the different options, which of the following are valid considerations?
A. Distance vector protocols have a finite limit of hop counts whereas link state protocols place no limit on the number of hops.
D. Distance vector protocols only send updates to neighboring routers. Link state protocols depend on flooding to update all routers in the within the same routing domain.
The answer is A but I rather chose D. Is EIGRP a Distance vector protocol? Does it have a finite limit of hop counts? Also, I think Link state protocol should flood updates to all routers within the same routing domain. I know OSPF only flood within an area but it's not technically a Link state protocol anymore between areas. It's more like a Distance vector protocol between areas. I think strict link state protocol should be just like OSPF with only one area.
Any opinions are welcome! Thanks!
