The switch will forward the frame to all ports.
The switch will forward the frame only to ports 1 and 3.
Explanation:The MAC address of PC3 is not present in the MAC table of the switch. Because the switch does not know where to send the frame that is addressed to PC3, it will forward the frame to all the switch ports, except for port 4, which is the incoming port.
