which subnet mask would be used if 5 host bits are available?

The subnet mask 255.255.255.0 has 8 host bits. The mask 255.255.255.128 provides 7 host bits. The mask of 255.255.255.224 has 5 host bits. Finally, 255.255.255.240 represents the 4 host bits.
The purpose of a subnet mask is to separate the portion of an IP address that contains location information from the portion that contains identity information.
The answer is: 255.255. 255.224
The subnet mask is a 32-bit number constructed by setting the host bit to 0 and the network bit to 1. In this way, the subnet mask divides the IP address into a network address and a host address. Address “255” is always assigned to broadcast addresses and addresses “0” is always assigned to network addresses.
You can use the windows search field to find the subnet mask. However, the subnet mask that would be used if 5 host bits are available is 255.255. 255.224
