Shell Script for Multiple Choice Questions
Linux shell script allows you to present a multiple choice question and gets the user’s answer, and reports back whether the answer is right, wrong, or not one of the choices. Here we will user case to match the answer which we accept using the read command.
# !/bin/bash echo Shell script is echo a\) an Operating System echo b\) a media player echo c\) a command-line interpreter echo d\) all of the above read answer case $answer in a) echo Wrong - the answer is c ;; b) echo Wrong - the answer is c ;; d) echo Wrong - the answer is c ;; c) echo Right ;; *) echo Not one of the choices ;; esac
Here is the sample output of the above script
