first read
Code:

grep --help
wc --help
echo --help
--- then the manual pages ---
man grep
then
man wc
then
man echo

to get out of the "man" page hit " q"

Also we will NOT do your homework BUT if you are stuck on something we will point you in the right direction

so post exactly what you have so far and what is not working and what you need it to do

I still have no idea what you're talking about. Can you be more specific? thanks

Please don't ask same question twice (same here)

To know about commands, read manuals:
Code:

~$ man <command_name>
To know about operators, you can follow this and this.

For files, let's know which Virtual machine?
