Display Specific line number using tail command

Hi ,
1)i want to display specific line number using tail command.
e.g. display 10 line from end.
Please help...
2)Want to display line 10 to 15 (from end)using tail command)
# 2  
If you want to view the lines as per the numbers from 10th line to 15th line use
Code:
tail +10 your_file.txt | head -5

# 3  
m searching perticular file using this command
tail -10 `ls -t1 | head -n1`
then
tail +10 `ls -t1 | head -n1` | head -5
is correct
