  3. Defining the type of encryption being used for the data
  4. Defining the electrical features of the communication media

 

Answer:
C. Defining the type of encryption being used for the data

 

Tutorial:
The data encryption method being used is not defined at the Physical layer of the OSI model. Data Encryption is supported at the Data-Link, Network, Transport, Session, and Application layers of the OSI model.

 

The Physical layer deals with electrical impulses, light and radio signals, physical cables, cards, and other physical aspects of the communication medium. Defining the type of connectors being used and the size and distance limitations of the Ethernet cable are some other functions performed at the Physical layer.
