single user mod question

When we go as single user mode, all the file systems are in ready only mode? If so, how to verify?

Use fsck. fsck works independently of the file system software and is thus not affected by the read only status. The read only status ensures that the file system software will not try to update the file system structure at the same time that fsck is modifying the file system structure.

You can verify by using mount with no options, it'll print out all the current mounts and how they are mounted.
