if this is homework, then you need to find these answers out yourself. please do not expect others to do your schoolwork for you. Quite why a friend would be setting you a super fun linux quiz i can't imagine.

All other LQ members... please take this into consideration before replying (or not, as may be more suitable)

These are all UNIX questions, not Linux (as evidenced by the word UNIX in the questions). Here are all of the answers to your questions - you learn far more by reading up on the subject and understanding the topics than you will by expecting others to do it for you. We are friendly and easy going at LQ, but we do have limits.

aboslutely any basic users kind you will find via http://google.com will be more than sufficient. these questions are extremely simple. you might want to look at the rute users guide (on my signature)

Anyone ever think too hard about a question?
like this one?
Quote:
1. UNIX commands are case sensitive. In which case must you type them?
a. all uppercase
b. all lowercase
c. sentence case, so the first letter is capitalized and others are lowercase
d. any combination of uppercase and lowercase
It tells you they are case sensitive and then doesn't give you the option of saying whatever case they are in. Foo != foo != FOO != foO. Example in SuSE there is a command called ControlPanel what answer does that fit? it's not a because of lowercase, not B because of Uppercase, Not C because it has a capital letter in the middle, and not D because any combination will not work.

Sounds to me like they are trying to kill your GPA fight the power!
