Explanation & Hint:

In the TCP connection termination process after Host A has received a web page from Server B and Host A initiates the termination, the steps would be matched as follows:

  1. Host A sends a FIN to server B. This is the first step when Host A wants to start the termination of the TCP connection after the data transfer is complete.
  2. Server B sends an ACK to host A. Server B acknowledges the FIN packet from Host A, which is part of the graceful closing of a TCP session.
  3. Server B sends a FIN to host A. After sending the ACK, Server B will also want to terminate its side of the connection and will send a FIN packet to Host A.
  4. Host A sends an ACK to server B. Finally, Host A acknowledges the FIN packet from Server B, completing the four-way termination handshake.

The option “Server B sends a SYN-ACK to Host A” is not used in the termination process; it is part of the initial three-way handshake when establishing a TCP connection.
