If a Company require 60 hosts then What is the best possible subnet mask? (A) 255.255.255.0 (B) 255.255.255.192 (C) 255.255.225.224 (D) 225.225.255.240

Answer: (B)

Explanation: Number of host = 2 ^ n – 2 , where n is number of host bits. 2^n – 2 = 60 Solving for n, n is approximate equal 6, so 6 host bits are enough . So desired subnet mask is 11111111.11111111.11111111.11000000 255.255.255.192
