Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This sounds like homework. Please show the commands you tried and what error messages (if any) you received. Also "translating to uppercase" is not at all clear. Translating what? The name of the month? The abbreviated days of the week? What?
And in the future please use a more descriptive thread title than "Please help me". Something like "Displaying calendar using the cal command" would give a better idea of what your problem is.

The response from the system "You entered ..." shows that you are within your structured question bank environment and not the shell. Two things to do:
1) Try cal 10 2014 | tr ... within your environment and
2) Go to a regular shell prompt and enter cal | tr ... and so on.
Option 2) should work. If option 1) works with year and month as arguments, go tell your examiner to improve the test bank.
