Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1)An access port transports traffic to and from only the specified VLAN allotted to it whereas a  trunk port is a port that is assigned to carry traffic for all the
VLANs that are accessible by a specific switch, a process known as
trunking  .

2) A trunk port is capable of having more than one VLAN set up on the interface whereas access port is capable of having one VLAN set up on interface

3) in trunk mode, the port is being tagged with VLAN whereas in access mode, the port is been in untagged mode.

    If this is a real life scenario and you have no, and you have had no training in networking, then might I suggest that you either consult someone who has had training so that you do not make a mistake in your implementation, or, get some training before you attempt these decisions.
