Candidate Screening Technical Question - Impossible to Answer - Q1

Image
Without additional information this question has two correct answers, but only one answer can be selected.  If the context is IPv4 the first answer is correct and if the context is IPv6 the third answer is correct.  I received this same IT assessment during October 2017 and November 2018.  On both occasions I replied with a description of the issue and screen images.  The issue still exists.
