    Does 1 minute include the time it takes me to write it out? I can do it in my head quite quickly but if I have to write or type everything down it takes me around a minute and a half to 2 mins.

      For the purposes of this exercise, I’d say it’s far more about the time to think of the answer, rather than to write it. On the real exam, your interaction will be to click a button, so you won’t have to write or type the addresses and masks. So: thinking time, which includes the time to write if necessary to come up with the answer, but not any of the time required to record your answer.
