Unless it's being sent by email in which case you might consider SMTP.

My 2¢,

> The wording and punctuation can be debated (possibly ad nauseam), but the fact remains that the correct answer is A.
> Even if you interpret the question as you say you did ("what is the protocol that does the transport of the little packets?"), the answer is TCP. The IP part of the Internet Protocol Suite is the protocol for the Internet Layer, which deals with addressing hosts and *routing* datagrams from host to host so that they ultimately get delivered from source host to target host. TCP, on the other hand, is the protocol for the Transport Layer, which is specifically involved with moving the datagrams from host to host. IP establishes each host-to-host hop to use, and TCP does the transport between those pairs of hosts.
> If I had any issue with the instructor's question, it would be on the basis that neither protocol can do the job without the other so that the best answer would be "TCP/IP". But since the focus is specifically on the transport, the only correct choice between the two options is TCP.
