CISCO CCNA 200-301 Q38

Refer to the exhibit. Which route does R1 select for traffic that is destined to 192 168.16.2?

C. 192.168 26.0/26

Correct Answers: D

Because each entry in a forwarding table may specify a sub-network, one destination address may match more than one forwarding table entry. The most specific of the matching table entries — the one with the longest subnet mask — is called the longest prefix match. It is called this because it is also the entry where the largest number of leading address bits of the destination address match those in the table entry.
