|If we use '-i' option with 'rm' command then the system will ask for confirmation before deleting the file.|

|-i means interactive, if -i used with rm means it will ask the user for confirmation before deletion.|

|If -i is attached with rm then editor will ask on command line whether to delete it like yes/no... which is called interactive.|

|-r, which removes directories, removing the contents recursively beforehand (so as not to leave files without a directory to reside in) ("recursive").
-i, which asks for every deletion to be confirmed ("interactive").
-f, which ignores non-existent files and overrides any confirmation prompts ("force") , although it will not remove files from a directory if the directory is write protected.
