the whole OS
lets see
c,c++, perl,php,python,ruby,assembly, html,there are many more .....

How can I see its source code
you read it in a text editor

I mean which directory do I have to search to see its source code
for the ENTIRE operating system ?????
for any one installed program get the source for it.
the src.rpm
or from the program website
but you might want to start with reading the fedora documentation FIRST

If you think that there's a "source code" for every Linux distro, you have no clue at all how a GNU/Linux system works. You should probably learn the basics first:

Anyway, a Linux distro is not really a program, but a collection of modular programs that make up the system. It will become obvious once you learn more.
