The number of directories doesn’t take into account /tmp, where the mongodb socket is created as specified in chapter 1.

I’m talking about what’s explained in Chapter 1 - File structure: https://university.mongodb.com/mercury/M103/2021_March_30/chapter/Chapter_1_The_Mongod/lesson/5a972acfc9d4ec11e704edca/lecture at 5:47
As far as I understand, in addition to the three directories you mention, mongodb will also be able to access the
/tmp directory to create the socket file. So the correct answer should be 4, not 3.
Yeah you’re correct…
Thank you for pin pointing the issue, we have forwarded this to the concerned team, will get updated soon.
Thanks & Regards
