In order to solve this question, we must remember the various options for Query Scoping that were covered in the CCIE R/S Written Class On Demand, and in Petr's excellent blog post. Remember, summarization, multiple EIGRP ASes, EIGRP Stub, and prefix filtering are all methods of scoping queries.

In this example, we examine R2's configuration and learn that automatic summarization is left on. But this has no effect whatsoever in this scenario as all devices are numbered in the same major classful network space. On R3, we notice that manual summarization is being accomplished, but notice that will scope the queries at R6 and R7. So any devices BEYOND R6 and R7 will not receive the queries for this subnet, but those devices will indeed receive them.

In summary (no pun intended), we just need to remember here two basic concepts from the course. What are the options to scope queries? How will they impact the query behavior once implemented.

So our answer - option b - R2, R3, R4, R5, R6, and R7 all receive query packets for this network.
