Highlight the relevant packet details and verify the size of the reassembled TCP segment.

Is this a homework question? If so, what have your tried so far?

No this is not a homework question. I just want to learn and explore wireshark as I am new to wireshark software.

Hi, You are not giving enough context but I'm guessing you are reading a tutorial. Put put it very brief if and simple; if you want to send a number of bytes over TCP the TCP protocol may have to chop that up in segments of a smaller number of bytes. I'm guessing "final data frame" refers to the last TCP packet carrying the bytes needed to complete the transfer, like a data PDU of a protocol using TCP as transport.
