    I think it should be pointed out, regarding #3, that the number of lines of code in Linux changes — generally upward — with each kernel release, and no-doubt the numbers shown in the answer are now outdated, but no-doubt were true at the time this article was written.

    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.
