Using the command “ls” commonly used options and arguments

ls has some interesting format which is very useful. Here are some arguments which you can use. For example, I like
$ ls - ltF

-a --all All files include those with .
-l Display results in long format
-r --reverse Reverse order while sorting
-S Sort results by file size
-t Sort by modification time.
-F --classify Append an indicator character to the end of each listed name
