Interview Question

Interview Austin, TX

There are two directly-connected switches. Assume that they

  communicate fine on the physical layer. Why can't two hosts with assigned addresses and communicate with each other? Also assume that network addresses can be used. How would you remedy this by swapping out only ONE of the devices on the network?

The hosts are on two different subnets. Replace one of the switches with a properly-configured router.
