    You want to change how your cursor looks on the command line permanently. To do that, you have to change the "PS1" value in what directory and file? Choose only one answer:

    1. /home/user/.bash_authority
    2. /home/user/.bashrc
    3. /home/user/.bash_profile
    4. /etc/bash.bashrc
    5. /etc/bash_completion
    6. /etc/bash_completion.d

    Answer later.

    Hmmm for a permenant change accross all users I'd say it would need to be in /etc or in the are for default user home directory files rather than a specific user.

    I'll guess at 2

    #2 is correct to change the cursor permanently for a specific user. To create a system wide configuration change, read by all shells, you'd have to modify /etc/profile.
