2. [2 points] If you are to develop an application that sends high quality images from one end to another,

Why is it that UDP takes the 1s complement of the sum: that is, why not just use the sum? With
the 1s complement scheme, how does the receiver detect errors? Is it possible that a 1-bit error will go
5. [5 points] List all possible Congestion Control mechanism considering the following image and explain
