Refer to the exhibit. Currently router R1 uses an EIGRP route learned from Branch2 to reach the 10.10.0.0/16 network. Which floating static route would create a backup route to the 10.10.0.0/16 network in the event that the link between R1 and Branch2 goes down?
- ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.0.0 Serial 0/0/0 100
- ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.0.0 22.214.171.124 100
- ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.0.0 126.96.36.199 100
- ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.0.0 188.8.131.52 50
A floating static route needs to have an administrative distance that is greater than the administrative distance of the active route in the routing table. Router R1 is using an EIGRP route which has an administrative distance of 90 to reach the 10.10.0.0/16 network. To be a backup route the floating static route must have an administrative distance greater than 90 and have a next hop address corresponding to the serial interface IP address of Branch1.
