Which of the following Windows console commands deletes a folder (c:\test), whether or not it is empty, without issuing any warnings?

EXPLANATION

The /s switch deletes ALL elements recursively inside the specified folder.
The /q switch is the silent mode, meaning there will be absolutely no warnings.
Caution

When you run rd /s in quiet mode, the entire directory tree is deleted without confirmation. Ensure that important files are moved or backed up before using the /q command-line option.
