Theoretical question about TCP connection on the Internet

  1. An exam question asked "True or false? Given a five-tuple can any TCP connection on the internet be uniquely identified." I said false because you only need to know the source IP, source port, destination IP and the destination port. Is this right? (technically the statement may be true since if your given one more piece of information it doesn't make it false).
