Welcome to LQ---Looking at both of your posts, it looks like you are asking homework questions. You need to be aware of the policies on this.

One way to do this is use the "ls -l" command and then use grep to find the leading "d" on all the directories.

Look at:
man ls
man grep

If your just looking to list the directories use ls to see all directories even hidden ls -a.
To learn more about grep man grep

Use grep with pipe

ls | grep argument

You can also try
Code:
ls -d */
this will list only the directories, without listing the content of the directories themselves.

To list all directories including the hidden ones:

ls -al | grep "^d"
