Which two requirements are used to determine if a route can be considered as an ultimate route in a router’s routing table? (Choose two.)

  1. contain subnets
  2. be a default route
  3. contain an exit interface*
  4. be a classful network entry
  5. contain a next-hop IP address*

Explanation: An ultimate route is a routing table entry that contains either a next-hop IP address (another path) or an exit interface, or both. This means that directly connected and link-local routes are ultimate routes. A default route is a level 1 ultimate route, but not all ultimate routes are default routes. Routing table entries that are subnetted are level 1 parent routes but do not meet either of the two requirements to be ultimate routes. Ultimate routes do not have to be classful network entries.
