389-4 Command Line - Inspecting a file

https://app.dataquest.io/m/389/file-inspection/4/counting-lines

I do not seem to understand how the answer is “answer 12 1469 20 737 17” as there are 3 numbers attributed to each file that is been read. How can one tell the one that is the number of lines for a particular file.

This is explained in the Learn section:

Pay special attention to the highlighted part and to the last line on the screenshot above.

Hope this helps.
