My ip address is 212.149.223.250 and subnet mask: 255.255.252.0

20 points each.

a) That is a c-class ip, but shouldn't the mask be at least  255.255.255.0? It seemes that bits from network portion are borrowed. So is that a C-class address with a B-class subnet mask with 6 bits borrowed from host to network portion?

b) I calculated that the host range for that subnet is 212.149.220.0 - 212.149.223.255 where the first and the last address are unusable, is this correct?
