I need to open a terminal using another terminal, does anyone know the command?

"Use the bash command to run a child shell and use the ps command from within this. Identify the PID and PPID (Process ID and Parent PID) of the child shell. Use the exit command and repeat."

Depends on your install what the terminal(s) are called. In Ubuntu/ Gnome-based distros use 'gnome-terminal'. 'xterm' is usually also installed but is more basic.

You need to be a lot more specific about the setup are you using, which distro is it based on and what desktop interface are you using if you are not using a command line only. Why are needing to run the separate terminal, is it due to needing elevated privileges or something else?
