    Good article and helpful to beginner or who wants to recall their knowledge in linux.

    I have observed the two things which needs to be corrected.

    1. Spelling of Linux on starting of answer of question #2.
    2. Do needful changes in given options of question #10.

    Thanks in advance!

      Thanks for finding this article useful, but do the spelling ‘Linus’ is correct – he is Linus Torvalds creator of Linux.
