Rackspace Network Security Administrator I Interview Question

I interviewed in Austin, TX and was asked:
"There are two directly-connected switches. Assume that they communicate fine on the physical layer. Why can't two hosts with assigned addresses 192.168.100.5/30 and 192.168.100.50/30 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.
