A Mobile Ad-hoc Network is a flexible wireless network. The nodes also function as routers which determine
and propagate the routing tables amongst their neighbours to ensure a destination can be reached in the network. Without the restraint of physical links, mobility is common; these connections are not necessarily constant, with nodes free to either leave or join the network. This paper presents an analysis of four routing protocols in relation to network performance. In particular, our analysis considers throughput,
packet delivery fraction, and total number of packets received. Network Simulator 3 was used to simulate an environment and scenario based on an Interactive Quiz where data such as text, image and video is transmitted to participants of the quiz. 20 simulations with varying parameters, i.e. routing protocol and
number of nodes show that DSDV is the most suitable protocol, managing 99.9% packet delivery regardless of number of nodes.
