In graphical mode, you can get to a shell by running which applications?
(choose two)

  • console
  • Terminal
  • Gbash
  • Xterm
  • Guiterm
Explanation & Hint:

In graphical mode on various operating systems, especially those based on UNIX and Linux, there are specific applications designed to provide access to a shell environment. From the options provided, the following two are correct:

  1. Terminal: This is a generic term often used to refer to graphical applications that emulate a console within a graphical environment. It provides a window where you can interact with the shell. “Terminal” might be found as “GNOME Terminal” on GNOME desktops, “Konsole” on KDE, or simply “Terminal” on macOS and other desktop environments.
  2. Xterm: This is one of the oldest terminal emulators in the UNIX world, provided by the X Window System. Xterm allows you to use a shell within a graphical user interface, making it possible to execute command-line programs.

The other options either do not exist or are less commonly known in standard environments:

  • console: While “console” often refers to a text-only display or terminal, it isn’t typically the name of a specific application in graphical environments. It more generally describes the concept or physical hardware for input and output.
  • Gbash: There is no standard application known as “Gbash”. It appears to be a combination of “GNOME” and “Bash”, but no such standard application exists with this name.
  • Guiterm: Like “Gbash”, “Guiterm” is not a recognized standard application for accessing the shell in graphical environments. It seems to be a fictional or incorrect term.

Therefore, Terminal and Xterm are the appropriate choices for applications through which you can access a shell in graphical mode.
