    If I was ever unsure about such a choice, I'd go look at the device. Various switches can have their own internal default gateways, generally for remote management and also for those that switch multiple VLANs. If VLANs are configured, a network diagram ought to indicate them, tending to make it obvious that such a switch is in place.

    If the question is about a default gateway for hosts in the network, you can probably assume it's a router.
