      Nothing as all output is saved to the file cat.

    Correct Answer
    D. Nothing as all output is saved to the file cat.
    Explanation
    When the command "cat dog & > cat" is executed, it redirects the output of the command "cat dog" to a file named "cat" using the ">" symbol. The "&" symbol is used to run the command in the background. As a result, no output will be displayed on the screen, and all the output will be saved to the file named "cat". Therefore, the correct answer is "Nothing as all output is saved to the file cat."
