Consider a TCP connection between a client and a server with the following specifications: the round trip time is 6 ms, the size of the receiver advertised window is 50 KB, slow start threshold at the client is 32 KB, and the maximum segment size is 2 KB. The connection is established at time t = 0. Assume that there are no timeouts and errors during transmission.
Then the size of the congestion window (in KB) at time t + 60 ms after all acknowledgements are processed is ______.

Consider the following statements regarding the slow start phase of the $$TCP$$ congestion control algorithm. Note that $$cwnd$$ stands for the $$TCP$$ congestion window and $$MSS$$ denotes the Maximum Segment Size.

$$(i)$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ The $$cwnd$$ increases by $$2$$ $$MSS$$ on every successful acknowledgment.
$$(ii)$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ The $$cwnd$$ approximately doubles on every successful acknowledgement.
$$(iii)$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ The $$cwnd$$ increases by $$1$$ $$MSS$$ every round trip time.
$$(iv)$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ The $$cwnd$$ approximately doubles every round trip time.

Which one of the following is correct?

A
Only $$(ii)$$ and $$(iii)$$ are true
B
Only $$(i)$$ and $$(iii)$$ are true
C
Only $$(iv)$$ is true

Consider an $$IP$$ packet with a length of $$4,500$$ bytes that includes a $$20$$-byte $$IPv$$$$4$$ header and a $$40$$-byte $$TCP$$ header. The packet is forwarded to an $$IPv4$$ router that supports a Maximum Transmission Unit $$(MTU)$$ of $$600$$ bytes. Assume that the length of the $$IP$$ header in all the outgoing fragments of this packet is $$20$$ bytes. Assume that the fragmentation offset value stored in the first fragment is $$0.$$

The fragmentation offset value stored in the third fragment is _______.
