Shell/commands/scripting/c questions

1. Can anyone explain me what the line

2. How do I write a command to print the longest line in a file?

3. How do I write a command to print the last word of every line of a file using sed?

4. What exactly does this line do?
Assuming it is run from vi.

Thank you all for your time.
