Company XYZ has multiple links terminate on HO (head office) router and it learns following routes through different protocol as shown below in routing table.
126.96.36.199/8 is variably subnetted, 4 subnets, 4 masks
B 188.8.131.52/30 [200/0] via 10.1.1.2, 00:06:12
D 184.108.40.206/28 [90/409600] via 220.127.116.11, 00:04:42, FastEthernet0/0
O 18.104.22.168/26 [110/65] via 22.214.171.124, 00:05:09, Serial0/1
S 126.96.36.199/24 is directly connected, 188.8.131.52
Which route will be preferred by HO router to send packet to host 184.108.40.206
A) BGP with subnet 220.127.116.11/30
B) EIGRP with subnet 18.104.22.168/28
C) OSPF with subnet 22.214.171.124/26
D) Static route configure with subnet 126.96.36.199/24
188.8.131.52/30 is most specific record for 184.108.40.206 in route table
Routing protocols preferences are used only when more than one equal-specific routes are placed in route table
A route that has a directly connected interface is better than a learned route.
STATIC ROUTE IS MORE PREFERED.
The one with a lower Administrative Distance is most preferred . Since in this case STATIC ROUTE.
