    Using Terminal, which command would you use to encrypt a text file?

    • A.

      ENCRYPT

    • B.

      CRYPT

    • C.

      BREAK

    • D.

      CIPHER

    • E.

      HASH

    Correct Answer
    E. HASH
    Explanation
    The correct answer is HASH. The reason is that the HASH command is commonly used to create a unique, fixed-size string of characters from a text file. This process is called hashing, and it is used for data integrity and security purposes. Encryption, on the other hand, involves converting the original text into a coded form to prevent unauthorized access. While encryption can be used to protect the contents of a text file, the question specifically asks for the command to encrypt, and the HASH command is not typically used for encryption purposes.
