Which of these subnet masks is represented by the CIDR notation of /16?
F) I’d like another glass of that
The answer: E) 255.255.0.0
The /16 CIDR notation refers to a 16 bit subnet mask, which would be the binary equivalent of 11111111.11111111.0000000.00000000, or 16 ones. If you convert this value to decimal, you would have a mask of 255.255.0.0.
