The correct answer for this question is the third option: Source MAC address which means Media Access Control address.
It was hard to find the right answer, but i do my best to find the correct answer for you. Thus, the right answer is: “source MAC address”
The NIC uses the destination MAC address. Once the router is connected to the device, it automatically knows what the destination MAC address is.
Destination MAC address. However, keep in mind that if the device is not directly connected to the router, you can expect that there will be no destination address that will be retrieved.
The MAC adress is teh correct answer; and it is an exceptional identifier given to a (NIC) network interface controller for use as a network address in communications inside a network part.
