The capacity of the medium to carry data is known as ____
 A Throughput B Bandwidth C Speed D Data rate
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Network bandwidth is a measurement indicating the maximum capacity of a wired or wireless communications link to transmit data over a network connection in a given amount of time. Typically, bandwidth is represented in the number of bits, kilobits, megabits or gigabits that can be transmitted in 1 second.

Detailed explanation-2: -Bandwidth pertains to how much time we have for a given area of life, like family, career, fitness, volunteering, etc. Capacity refers to how much fruit we are able to bear in that given amount of time.

Detailed explanation-3: -Why do we refer to our internet speeds as “bandwidth” with units of measurement like “10 Mbps"? As I understand it, Bandwidth is, as the name implies, the width of the frequency band, typically measured in Hertz. So if you had a signal with a spectrum from 2MHz to 10MHz, your bandwidth would be 8MHz.

Detailed explanation-4: -Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time. In the context of networks and the Internet, this is usually measured in Kbps or Mbps.
