Which of the following destination subnets have equally load-balanced routes? (Choose all that apply.)

The and networks have equally load-balanced routes. A default route,, has been configured for load balancing as well. These three subnets are each load balanced on multiple routes. The output entry for the subnet is as follows:

D [90/1723695] via, 00:56:17, S0/1
[90/1723695] via, 00:50:58, S0/1

This subnet can be reached by rtrA through two routes: and next-hop addresses. Both these routes have the same metric (1723695), and so are equally load balanced.

In the output, the subnet has three equal-metric routes:,, and These three routes are equally used to balance the load from rtrA to the subnet.

The default route is load balanced through two interfaces, as shown in the output:

D*EX [170/2645987] via, 00:05:12, Ethernet0/0
[170/2645987] via, 00:05:12, Ethernet0/0

This load balancing of the default route could be tested by using traceroute to any IP address not represented in the routing table and verifying the path taken.

Subnets and are not participating in load balancing. In the given output, there is a single route (line) for both of these subnets. The rtrA router uses the route through the next-hop to reach the destination subnet. Similarly, rtrA uses the next-hop to transmit packets to the subnet.
