    CSMA/CA can b used in wire based ehtermet lan but problem is that its eficiency is very low if CSMA/CD provide 70% eficincy than CSMA/CA provide 30% reason is that in CSMA/CD every terminal take less time to check the path is free or not therefore after collision it turns come soon but in CSMA/CA terminal take lot of time to check path is free or not therefore in heavy trafic chance of collision is increases therefoer we preffer CSMA/CD and wire domain is very suitable environment for collosion detection. third link whicch i write may help more check it
