How can you Find The Exact Version of Zorin OS Installed


I Borrowed a Copy from a friend and it is Supposed to be Zorin OS 12.1 Ultimate.
When I Check it in Settings Details it Says Zorin OS 12.1 64-bit.
When I Check it from the Terminal with this Command ( lsb_release -a ),it says much the same Except it says Codename XENIAL.
But Nowhere Does it Say Zorin Ultimate.

cat /etc/*release* /etc/*issue*
if that doesn't do it, it must have something to do with it being a paid version, so they probably have some zorin-specific mechanism.

OK So I ran This ( cat /etc/*release* /etc/*issue*) and it doesnt really tell much more.
So Maybe it's got something to do with it being a Payed Version.
But Whats This XENIAL Name would that be some Clue to it possibly being Zorin OS ULTIMATE.????

Zorin is built from Ubuntu and Xenial (Xenial Xerus) is the code name for Ubuntu 16.04.03.

I have never tried Zorin so not sure how or where they do it...
