While thats a valid linux command, and would normally work. This challenge is more simplified. I.e you can only enter one command at a time.

Also if you had read other threads on this subject, you would have seen that.

alright a bit of a sploiler but consider how you can break up commands.

cd ../../../../blah/blah/blah

could also be done with
cd ..
cd ..
cd ..
cd ..
cd blah
cd blah
cd blah

get the idea
