    • 1-rollover; 2-crossover; 3-straight-through; 4-straight-through
    • 1-rollover; 2-straight-through; 3-straight-through; 4-straight-through

    the answer is wrong , the correct answer is :
    • 1-rollover; 2-straight-through; 3-straight-through; 4-straight-through

    since cable 2 connect workstation to a router ( diffrent devices ) .
