    I believe that the correct answer is 5. IP SLA is used to measurements, not offset lists.

    I agree with you Augusto. The answer is IP SLA. The explanation says that but the answer should be 5, not 4.

    This was my mistake — the correct answer is 5, but I entered 4. The explanation should be correct.
