Exercise 1 - Find Files and Commands on a Linux System

Files and directories are placed in general places across different Linux distributions. However, for a Linux distribution that is FHS compliant, a user can very well predict the common locations for specific directories, such as /etc and /var. The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard or FHS specification specifies the file and directory layout in a Linux system.

In this exercise, you will understand how to find files and commands on the Linux system.
