1)This is mentioned at one of the Prep Test
2)The access list is as the followings:
" access-list 101 permit ip any "
3) My questions: i) i understood up to " access-list 101 permit", ii) why it needs to mention the wording of "ip" ?, iii) The " " is a subnet? (confirm please), iv) for what is the wording "any" (if it has been mentioned the subnet ""; so it will cover anything, right?)
4) Thank you

any refers to the destination scope, in this case any network.
