What Domain Name Servers?

How do I determine what Domain Name Servers my Virtual Machine is using?

My Network Adapter is set to "Bridged Adapter". Is it using the DNS of the host OS?

If you are using bridged mode your vm will get its network config from whatever DHCP server you have on your network, so the vm will use the DNS service which your DHCP server allocates to it. If your host machine uses the same DHCP server then yes, they will both be using the same DNS service.
