AI Explanation

To display the calendar of September 2005, the correct syntax is:

A. Cal 9 2005

Option A) Cal 9 2005 - This option is correct because the "cal" command followed by the month and year (in this case, 9 for September and 2005) will display the calendar for that specific month and year.

Option B) Calendar 2005 - This option is incorrect because the "calendar" command is not the correct command to display the calendar. The correct command is "cal".
