someone please explain to me which is wrong and why? I'm basing my
answer off info gleened from:

A) inside local IP address
B) inside global IP address
C) outside global IP address
D) outside local IP address

From the document you recfer to above:

Inside global address-A legitimate IP address assigned by the NIC or service

inside local IP addresses to the outside world.

Devices on the internet must have legitimate (global) IP addresses. So you
are left with only B or C as possible answers.

If they are referring to devices on the corporate network that interface
with the internet cloud (i.e Edge routers)

then indeed B is the correct answer.

While the sentence might not be the best way to phrase it, it is
certainly better than some of the questions I have seen from CISCO -

think if CISCO paid more attention to how they specified their
questions and instructions, more people would pass their exams.
