Three of the characteristics of an IPv6 anycast address are delivery of packets to the group interface that is closest to the sending device, the same address for multiple devices (not hosts), and a one-to-many communication model.

So the answers here would be F, E, and A, respectively. Since I am not a programmer and am not particularly familiar with this, I will do my best to explain it in better terms. Think of packets like packages you recieve from online shops. Multiple packages are flown from the storehouse to the nearest warehouse for packaging and storage.

On that same note, if you order for multiple people under multiple names, they’ll all come to the same address if you all live together - just like the IPv6 can give multiple devices the same address.
