I want to make some lessons in Linux for SoloLearn. To make it easy for me I would love if people who know a bit Linux will take two minutes and write about one Linux command. Example : cd - change directory is a command line command to change the current working directory in operating system such as Unix. (same in windows cmd)

ls - list files. A command that lists the files and directories in the current working directory.
Linux is huge. So huge there's an entire website called the linux documentation project https://www.tldp.org There are also man pages and info to give you information. Try typing the following in a terminal window... man cd man ls man man info man info info Linux has a great tradition of documentation and is probably the best documented operating system available. As the saying goes RTFM - Read The Fine Manual.
Great! Go ahead
The maximum size for an entry is about 2k characters per post. Here's a link to the man page for the "ls" command... http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/ls.1.html and another for the "cd" command... http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/cd.1p.html The over simplistic answer of "ls lists files" or "cd changes directory" says nothing about the syntax or options for the command. It's neither helpful nor informative. How many commands are there? Well here's a link to just the section 1 commands available... http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/dir_section_1.html
As you said Linux is huge, this kind of post can summarize the most important things you need to know. Or at least the most basic things you need.
