The first step of the "Committing Multiple Files" exercise in Episode 4 is to add a new line of text to mars.txt. The command cat mars.txt is then used to examine the contents of the file before proceeding.

(I'd guess not the last option as the solution's commit log says "2 insertions" only.) If someone could clarify, I'd be happy to open a PR to fix 😄
