How to use SUDO

How can I create an instance or command using SUDO. I mean if I want somebody else to do some work as root what do I have to do. I am using Linux RedHat7.1.

You'll need to edit the /etc/sudoers file that came with your version of sudo.

This file should contain a name of users and the commands that they can execute using "sudo command"
I think the documentation in the sudoers file itself is quite self explanatory.
