Here is an example of a performance based question you might see.
The following table gives an example of what you might see as choices for protocols and ports. You would need to drag the correct port on the right to the correct protocol on left. (Some ports might not be used and some ports might be used more than once.)
This sample simulated performance-based question question shows how a performance-based question can test your knowledge of ports.

Make sure you review the information on the performance based questions before you take the live exam.
Each of these questions includes an explanation. Use these explanations to help you understand why the correct answers are correct and why the incorrect answers are incorrect. This way, no matter how CompTIA words the questions, you’ll be able to answer them correctly.
The test bank includes a group of simulated performance-based questions related to ports. It includes a graphic with a full solution showing all the ports. Table 3.1 in the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-401 Study Guide also includes a table showing all the relevant protocols and ports you should know for the Security+ exam.
