The alternative notation for the given IPv6 address, B514:82C3:0000:0000:0029:EC7A:0000:EC72, can be determined by understanding the rules of IPv6 address representation.

In IPv6, there are two ways to represent consecutive blocks of zeros:

  1. Double colon (::) notation: This notation can be used only once in an IPv6 address to represent one or more consecutive blocks of zeros. It can be used to shorten the representation of the IPv6 address.

  2. Leading zeros can be removed from each block of the address. For example, 0000 can be represented as 0.

Using these rules, we can determine the alternative notation for the given IPv6 address.

First, we can remove the leading zeros from the address: B514:82C3:0:0:29:EC7A:0:EC72

Next, we can use the double colon notation to represent the consecutive blocks of zeros: B514:82C3::29:EC7A:0:EC72

Therefore, the answer is B. B514:82C3::0029:EC7A:EC72.

Option A is incorrect because it still includes leading zeros.

Option C is incorrect because it includes two sets of consecutive blocks of zeros, which is not allowed in IPv6.

Option D is incorrect because it includes a mix of leading zeros and non-leading zeros.
