This question's answer is incorrect.

This is cut from the man page.

rm prompts the user for whether to remove
the file. If the response is not affirmative, the file is skipped.

--interactive[=WHEN]
prompt according to WHEN: never, once (-I), or always (-i);
without WHEN, prompt always
{ie.. rm --interactive=never }
You state that rm -f is incorrect.
The following is also cut and pasted from it's man page
-f, --force
ignore nonexistent files and arguments, never prompt
So according to it's own documentation states that rm prompts the user. rm -f forces rm to ignore all errors and arguments and to never prompt.

So if you leave the question the way it is the answer needs to be rm -f.

Also all the quesions are capitalized. Linux and unix alike are caps sensitive. That would make all the answers incorrect being that Mkdir and mkdir in the eyes of the OS are two different animals. If some one is learning they are learning the wrong way. Caps is extremely important in Linux unlike windows.
