a. 2 bytes
b. 1 byte
c. 4 bytes
d. 5 bytes
Answer:5 bytes
Shuvro :(October 23, 2019) Calculation:
Here,
Message size = 48 bytes
Each packet header size = 3 bytes
Total packets = 24
So, total packets header size = 24 * 3 = 72 bytes
Now, total message size including header = 48 + 72 = 120 bytes
Therefore, the packet size = 120 / 24 = 5 bytes
Answer: 5 bytes
