what is an advantage of a domain?

4 Answers

Central management and organization of a group of devices, users, and resources.

This question was obviously asked by someone who knows nothing about security. What is an advantage of a domain? What type of domain were they asking about? Physical? The name in a DNS?

If 6 men can do a piece of work in 14 days, how many men are needed to do the work in 21 days?

3 Answers

The correct answer is actually 4. It takes one person 84 days to do a piece of work (6 times 14), so it would take 4 men to do it in 21 days. Less

14days / 21days = x men / 6 men x = 4 men
