CISCO CCNA 200-301 Q183

On which of the following networks will OSPF elect a designated router (DR)? (Choose two.)

A. Broadcast
C. Point-to-point
D. Point-to-multipoint

Correct Answer: A, B

OSPF will perform an election for a designated router (DR) and backup designated router (BDR) on every multi-access network segment. Multi-access segments are defined as segments where more than two hosts can reach each other directly, such as a shared Ethernet segment (broadcast multi-access) or Frame Relay (non-broadcast multi-access, or NBMA).

DR and BDR elections do not occur on point-to-point or point-to-multipoint segments. Point-to-point and point-to-multipoint segments are not considered multi- access segments. OSPF routers on these network types will establish an adjacency without a DR/BDR election.
