After you login, # preceed comments and are not commands you enter.
Code:
# to get the bash shell
/bin/bash
# to get the ksh shel
/bin/ksh

When you want to quit, you will be down inside a second shell. So that means
you next to type exit <return> exit <return>. The first exit gets you out of your preferred shell, the second one gets you out of unix.

Thank you.

Can i ask you one last question.

Lets say my default shell is bash and then i load up csh and then ksh. How would i exit csh without exiting ksh?

so basically i gone from bash > csh > ksh and i wish to close csh
