1> ls chap* - will list all the files starting with "chap" and we want only chap01, chap02 & chap04.

2> ls -x chap0[124] - "x" list entries by lines instead of by columns.

But yes we can get output with ls chap0[124] as well. :).

ls chap0[124]

ls -x chap0[124]

Its a wildcard.

ls chap* will give any file starting with chap and we want chap 01, 02 and 03.

ls chap[124]: Will give error.

ls chap0[124]: Will get output chap 01, 02, qnd 03.

ls -x chap0[124]: Will get output by line instead of by columns.

According to me,

Is chap0[124]: is the answer.
Is -x chap0[124]: row(lines) and not columns.
