A. physical interface, no subinterfaces
B. point-to-multipoint subinterface
C. point-to-point subinterface

CCNA Security Certification / CCNP ISCW Exam:
What's the main difference between stateful and stateless packet filtering?
Answer: Stateless packet filtering only considers the values in the ACL - there's no attempt to determine if this packet is part of an already-existing connection, or attempting to create one. With protocols that use random port numbers at times - FTP, for example - there can be some real problems establishing a connection.
Stateful packet filtering does monitor the connection state, and that's particularly important when it comes to preventing TCP attacks. A stateful firewall will not only monitor the state of the TCP connection, but also the sequence numbers. Stateful firewalls accomplish this by keeping a session table, or state table.

Answer: B, D. L1/L2 routers can form adjacency with any L1 in the same area, L1/L2 in any area, and L2 in any area.
