1. What is the function of an MMC? Why is it necessary to create customized MMCs?
The MMC is a tool used to create, save, and open collections of administrative tools, which are called consoles. The console does not provide management functions itself, but is the program that hosts management applications called snap-ins. You create custom MMCs to perform a unique set of administrative tasks.

Snap-ins are programs used by administrators to manage network services.
3. What is the function of a console tree?
A console tree displays the hierarchical organization of the snap-ins contained with an MMC.
4. What are extensions?
Extensions are snap-ins that provide additional administrative functionality to another snap-in.
