If a device receives an Ethernet frame of 60 bytes, what will it do?
- drop the frame
- process the frame as it is
- send an error message to the sending device
- add random data bytes to make it 64 bytes long and then forward it
Explanation:Ethernet standards define the minimum frame size as 64 bytes. A frame less than 64 bytes is considered a “collision fragment” or “runt frame” and is automatically discarded by receiving devices.
