Which two statements about floating static routes are true? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
A. They have a higher administrative distance than the default static route administrative distance. C. They are used as backup routes when the primary route goes down.
A floating static route is a static route that has a higher administrative distance than the primary static route to the same destination network. The administrative distance is a measure of the trustworthiness of the routing information source, with a lower value indicating a higher degree of trust. By default, a static route has an administrative distance of 1, which is lower than the administrative distance of any dynamic routing protocol.
Floating static routes are used as a backup or alternative route to the primary static route. When the primary route goes down, the router will use the floating static route instead.
Option B is incorrect because floating static routes are not routes to the exact /32 destination address. They are routes to a network, not a host.
Option D is incorrect because floating static routes are not dynamic routes learned from a server. They are manually configured routes.
Option E is incorrect because floating static routes are not used when a route to the destination network is missing. They are used as backup routes to the primary static route.
In conclusion, options A and C are the correct statements about floating static routes.
