I don't think A is a valid host IP address because it is broadcast address

/23 is classless. So the broadcast would actually be 172.16.1.255

A = Broadcast surely ? ... B = Network ID .... C = Valid ... D = Not even close ... E = Invalid IP .... Or do I have this wrong ? but I can only see 1 Valid host in this ? ... somebody please put me straight if I am wrong.
