Jessica is creating a virtual private cloud (VPC) with a private subnet in her IaaS environment. Which one of the following IP address ranges would not be appropriate for this subnet?
Correct Answer: D
The following address ranges are available for use on private networks and subnets: 10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255, 172.16.0.0-172.31.255.255, and 192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255. Three of the subnets presented in this question fall into these ranges while the fourth, 18.104.22.168/16 does not. That subnet is a public address range assigned to a particular user and should not be used on a private subnet.
