Bonus Assignment 9 is optional. It is worth up to an additional 20% on your second Midterm Test score. (Though it is called an Assignment, it does not affect your Assignments score, it improves only your second Midterm Test score.) If you do bonus Assignment 9 successfully, I will increase your second Midterm Test mark by 20% (1/5) of the distance between your current test mark and 100%, e.g.:
You must Read All The Words and follow the exact instructions in Assignment 9 for it to be counted. Read All The Words!

Use the exact format described below to enter the question and the answer.
If you had no incorrect answers, upload an empty answer file. If you missed the test, you would have to copy the entire test and answer every question to get full marks for this bonus assignment.
Underneath each question and correct answer in your answer file, indicate specifically where in the Class Notes (which section of which Class Notes file) you can learn how to generate this correct answer. No marks are awarded unless your exact source for getting the answer is shown. Show me that you know exactly where in the notes, worksheets, or manual pages the answer comes from.
Number each question with a leading
Q and use this exact file format and spelling for each answer section (exact!):
Q5. What is a shell for? Answer: to find and run programs Source: 120_shell_basics.html "What is a shell for?" Q22. How do you recursively remove a non-empty directory? Answer: rm -r Source: Worksheet 3 section 5 rm command
Qusing the above format.

WARNING: You may copy-and-paste each question and the correct answer into your answer file. You must do your own work finding the source web document where the correct answer can be found. Marks are awarded for original typed work for the source, not for copy-and-paste from your friends. Any source answers that are found to be copy-and-paste from some other document will result in a charge of plagiarism or academic fraud. Do your own research; type your own answer source locations; no copy-and-paste from your friends; they won’t be at your job interview.
In this assignment, you are only answering the questions that you got wrong on the midterm test, not all the questions. Just the ones you got wrong.
