Which topology is more reliable and why?
Ans. A star topology is generally considered more reliable.
A Star Topology uses a switch, which all host connect to. If one host goes down, it has no effect on the performance of the network. Also, each host can communicate and send data simultaneously which improves performance and efficiency, and a Star is more scalable, because, if you need to add more node, you can do so without seriously affecting the performance of your network.
