Unhappy A question on Linux certification


A question on Linux certification doesn't make sense to me, especially the answer.

Which option, when passed to the gpg command, will enter an interactive menu enabling the user to perform key management related tasks? (Provide only the option)

answer: edit -key --

Can anyone help?
Thanks in Advance.

part of becoming conversant in *nix is learning where to find these things out, if you can't find out on your own, you are not truly certified.

Did you read/check the gpg man page?
Quote:
--edit-key
Present a menu which enables you to do most of the key manage‐
ment related tasks. It expects the specification of a key on
the command line.

Depends on the certification. On some I have done you don't have access to a system you can check on. Just tick the answer.
On others you did - but in that case, the questions were not of that ilk ...
