(i) The most suitable place to house the server of this organization would be HR Center, as this place contains the maximum number of computers. So cabling cost is reduced as well as efficiency is increased.


(iii) There is no need for a repeater as no distance is greater than 70m. But Hub/switch would be required in all the blocks, to interconnect the group of cable from the different computers in each block. 

(iv) Since the distance between university office and admission office is too large (250 kms), so WAN would be used to connect university office to admission office.
