what is the meaning of this question and what's the possible best
answer:
============================
Q- Why is router on a stick a necessary solution?

1-because Layer 2 LAN switches can also operate at Layer 3
2-because routers cannot route packets between multiple VLANs
3-because Layer 2 LAN switches can only support a single VLAN
4-because Layer 2 LAN switches cannot switch frames between multiple
VLANs
============================================

google this group for "router on a stick"

> 1-because Layer 2 LAN switches can also operate at Layer 3


That's obviously wrong so you can eliminate that.

> 2-because routers cannot route packets between multiple VLANs


That's true on some routers but not all routers.

> 3-because Layer 2 LAN switches can only support a single VLAN


That's true on some layer 2 switches but not all layer 2 switches.

>VLANs


There are some unusual switches and unusual definitions of VLANs;
that one would probably be good for some beer arguments with some
old timers.

What is the basic function that a router performs ?

With the answer for that question you can divine the answer to your
posted question

Looks like one of the questions in the CCNA intro book.
