The classification metric used here
Network Topology is the arrangement of the various elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a computer network. Essentially, it is the topological structure of a network, and may be depicted physically or logically. The metric used to define networks by topology is what clients they are using and how they are using them. A wide area network is larger than a metropolitan network for example.
It would take 1 hop to send a message from A to B. To get from B to A it would take 3 hops to send a message. It would take one link to connect E to D and C. It would add one message to the transverse of the ring.
It would actually take one message to send a message from A to D. The same goes from D to A. It would take one to add node e between C and B. The added node would affect the network by having no initial effect on it.
It would take 2 actual messages to send a message from A to B. If the central device is a hub then it would take would take two messages to get from A to B. If using a switch it would take one message to get A to B. The effect of adding a new node between C and...
