  • C.
    Press the Up arrow key, and use bash’s editing features to correct the typo.

Answer : [D]

Any of these approaches will work, or at least might work. (You might err when performing any of them.) Option B or C is likely to be the most efficient approach; with a long filename to type, option A is likely to be tedious.

You type echo $PROC, and the computer replies Go away. What does this mean?
  • A.
    No currently running processes are associated with your shell, so you may log out without terminating them.
  • B.
    The remote computer PROC isn’t accepting connections; you should contact its administrator to correct the problem.
  • C.
    Your computer is handling too many processes; you must kill some of them to regain control of the computer.
  • D.
    Your central processing unit (CPU) is defective and must be replaced as soon as possible.
  • Answer & Explanation
  • Report
Answer : [E]
Explanation :
The echo command echoes what follows to standard output, and $PROC is an environment variable. Thus, echo $PROC displays the value of the $PROC environment variable, meaning that it must have been set to the specified value by you, one of your configuration files, or a program you’ve run. Although many environment variables are set to particular values to convey information, $PROC isn’t a standard environment variable that might be associated with information described in options A, B, C, or D.

  • Report
Answer : [A]
Explanation :
The pwd command prints (to standard output) the name of the current working directory. The remaining options are simply incorrect, although option B describes the cd command, and various tools can be used to reformat wide text for display or printing in fewer columns, as in option C

In an xterm window launched from your window manager, you type exec gedit. What will happen when you exit from the gedit program?
  • A.
    Your shell will be a root shell
  • B.
    The gedit program will terminate, but nothing else unusual will happen.
  • C.
    Your X session will terminate.
  • D.
    The xterm window will close.
  • E.
    A new instance of gedit will be launched.
  • Answer & Explanation
  • Report
Answer : [D]
Explanation :
The exec command causes the rest of the command to replace the current shell. Thus, when you exit from gedit in this scenario, the result will be the same as if you’d terminated the shell; namely, the xterm window will close. The exec command doesn’t raise the execution privilege, so option A is incorrect. (The su and sudo commands can raise execution privilege, though.) Because the xterm window closes, option B is incorrect. X won’t ordinarily terminate when a single xterm does, and definitely not if that xterm was launched from a window manager, so option C is incorrect. The exec command does not cause re-execution of the command after the first instance terminates, so option E is incorrect.
