What is the difference between Multicast and Broadcast?

I recently had an interesting engagement with a group of CISA students over the difference between multicast and broadcast. There is a sample CISA question which most students get it wrong. Here is a how the question goes.

—————————————————————————————————————————————

This type of data transmission is often used to transmit video signals across the network.

A. Unicasting
B. Broadcasting
C. Multicasting
D. Pinging

————————————————————————————————————————————-

Note the key word here “often used“. This means you would find it often in relation to the rest.
