Network without a server

I am on the last question of my A+ mock exam, and although I am fairly sure of the answer I could do with some expert-exchange clarification.

Users on your network can log on to the individual workstations, there are no dedicated servers. You can share local folders and printers that are attached to their workstations, with other users on this network. What of the following term most accurately describes the network?

A: - Client/Server
B:-  Wide Area Network
C:- Trusting Domain,
D:- Peer to Peer

I am fairly sure it is D as the comps are directly communicating with one another. I am not entirely sure what a trusting domain is, other than I am fairly sure you would need a server to create one? A rules it's self out, and B it's not.

Many thanks,

You're correct.  The question describes a peer to peer network.

A trusting domain is a Windows Networking idea - where you have a Windows NT/AD domain with controllers and one domain "trusts" another for user authentication and such.

A trusting domain is more than likely referring to multiple Windows Domains that trust one another.
