|Incorrect option as it should be ls-l | wc-l
And to view hidden files as well it should be ls-la | wc-l

|ls -l | wc -l is correct option.
As it will give number of files stored in directory.

|ls -l option will give one extra count then the number of files.|

|B is the correct answer.
Because, -w for word count and -c for character count.
|Aadesh Dubey said: (May 7, 2015)|
|A. ls | wc --> Display the lines, words, and characters.
B. ls-l | wc -l--> Display total lines including one extra count since ls -l will give you another line with (total 0).
C. ls | wc -w--> Display all files and provide word count, but what will happen if a file name contains space, will it still give count as 2 or will it give the count as 3.
$ls | wc -w
D. ls | ws -c --> Will give the character count of the list of files.
E. None of the above --> According to me this should be the answer.
Any thoughts will be much appreciated.

So OPTION C is correct.
