      Text

    • B.

      Full

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Text
    D. Graphical
    Explanation
    The Red Hat Fedora installation can be performed in two modes: text and graphical. In the text mode, the installation process is performed through a command-line interface, allowing the user to input commands and navigate through the installation steps using text-based menus. On the other hand, the graphical mode provides a user-friendly graphical interface, where the installation steps are displayed using icons, buttons, and graphical elements, making it easier for users who prefer a visual approach. Both modes offer different ways to install Red Hat Fedora based on the user's preference and familiarity with command-line or graphical interfaces.

  • 6. 

    Linux commands entered via the command line are not case sensitive. True or False?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Linux commands entered via the command line are case sensitive. This means that the commands must be typed in exactly as they are, with the correct capitalization, in order for them to be recognized and executed properly. For example, "ls" and "LS" would be treated as two different commands and may produce different results. Therefore, the statement that Linux commands are not case sensitive is incorrect.

This combination allows the user to switch to the seventh virtual console, which is typically where the graphical terminal is located. The other options listed do not correspond to the correct key combination for opening the graphical terminal.

    After a user logs in to a terminal, he receives a user interface called a __________.

    • A.

      GUID

    • B.

      Shell

      Command screen

    Correct Answer
    B. Shell
    Explanation
    After a user logs in to a terminal, they receive a user interface called a shell. A shell is a command-line interface that allows the user to interact with the operating system by typing commands. It provides a way for the user to execute various commands and programs, navigate through directories, and manage files and processes. The shell acts as an intermediary between the user and the operating system, interpreting the commands entered by the user and executing them accordingly.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Users enter commands directly to the kernel of the Linux operating system. True or False?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. Users do not directly enter commands to the kernel of the Linux operating system. Instead, users interact with the kernel through a shell or command-line interface, which acts as an intermediary between the user and the kernel. The kernel is responsible for managing system resources and providing services to the user and applications running on the system.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    How can you protect a metacharacter (such as the $ character) from shell interpretation?

    • A.

      Precede it with a /.

    • B.

      Follow it with a \.

    • E.

      Precede it with a \.

    Correct Answer
    E. Precede it with a \.
    Explanation
    To protect a metacharacter, such as the $ character, from shell interpretation, you can precede it with a \. This will escape the metacharacter and prevent it from being interpreted as a special character by the shell.
