Answer : D

Explanation:

ARP – Address Resolution Protocol
It is used to find the MAC address from known IP address.
ARP is used to convert an IP address to a physical address such as an Ethernet address (MAC Address).

If a host or device transmitting data to another network (not same IP subnet), then data will forward to default gateway.

In the exhibit, the Host A is transmitting data to Host B, then Host A forward the packet to Router1, for that communication Host A needs MAC address of Router1. If we check the ARP cache of Host A, we will get 192.168.6.1 – 000f.2480.8916.

    I think this is the right answer

    What host A would do is:
    – Host A knew that the IP address of host B is not in the same subnet so it would send the ICMP message (or ping) to default gateway which is 192.168.6.1 (fa0/0). However, it needs to know the actually physical address of this IP address to do so.
    – To get the MAC address host A will send ARP request (broadcast) with the IP address 192.168.6.1 as destination. F0/0 gets it and send back the MAC address. THIS MAC ADDRESS and the IP address 192.168.6.1 of F0/0 will be recorded in ARP cache of host A for future use.
