KC 22.4 expecting /proc/sys, but should expect /proc/sys/kernel

Knowledge check 22.4 asks for "the ?? directory stores special files for configuring kernel parameters at runtime".

It apparently is expecting an answer of "/proc/sys". The answer, according to the chapter content, is "/proc/sys/kernel".

    Actually no.

    there is also /proc/sys/vm (for memory stuff), /proc/sys/net for network stuff, /proc/sys/fs for filesystem stuff etc. the files in /etc/sysctl.conf work for all these directories, as does the sysctl command.
