(ii) Max. no of computers (250) in training building so the server can be placed here. 

(iii) Every building has more than 2 computers, so hub is required in every building. 

Repeaters are used if distance is greater than 70m so repeater is required between training and accounts building.

(iv) Optical fiber has the highest speed of connectivity.
