"I have been sdudying using the suggested books but I still couldn't find the correct answer to some of the above questions. "

That's because you're supposed to THINK instead of just looking through books hoping to find the answer laid out literally.

I did think of the answers and I got the answer for some of the above questions but I have STUDIED the books and used google with no success. I will post the answers that i have in my next thread. My school is online so I don't really get any help. I need to study all on my own. I like networking better than software engineering or database design. thanks
