Answer

  • Scope:

Scope is a 4-bit multicast scope value used to limit the scope of the multicast group.

  • Address Type:

The three types of IPv6 addresses are: unicast, anycast, and multicast.
     Unicast addresses identify a single interface.
     Anycast addresses identify a set of interfaces in such a way that a packet sent to an anycast address is delivered to a member of the set.
     Multicast addresses identify a group of interfaces in such a way that a packet sent to a multicast address is delivered to all of the interfaces in the group.
