What is the limitation of DHCP when it is deployed in a multiple subnet environment?
My Answer:
It generates too much unwanted network traffic across different subnets.
  It cannot be used if a set of IP addresses needs to be set aside for other purposes.
  It cannot be used when BOOTP is also deployed.
  It cannot traverse across the router without special arrangement.

I don't know about anything else, but I would say "It cannot be used if a set of IP addresses needs to be set aside for other purposes." is incorrect because when using DHCP you can set aside reserved IP addresses to be used for static IPs.
