    Now try to List the Directory’s Contents
    To List the Directory you are in execute:

    * And see ‘ls‘ as an Abbreviation for ‘List‘ or ‘Listing‘ *
    The Output on a New Terminal window should be very similar to this:

    Desktop/    Downloads/  Pictures/   tmp/
    Documents/  Music/      Templates/  Videos/

    Here the Entities with a Trailing Slash are Directories.
    Again execute to List the Downloads Folder on your Home:

    ls ~/Downloads

    Or also:

    ls $HOME/Downloads

    Next to List the Main System’s Root Directory:

    ls /

    Furthermore, to List the usr Directory:

    ls /usr

    Finally, to List the Nested bin Directory into the usr one:
