You ran a script that wrongly put its output image files in the 'work' directory inside the current directory.

Create a bash script that removes all the files in the 'work' directory that start with either 'out_0' or 'out_1' and end with '.png'.

For example, if the 'work' directory contains the following files: 

The 'work' directory contains out_0a.png, out.png and out_0.pdf

After running your script, both out.png and out_0.pdf should exist in the 'work' directory but out_0a.png should no longer exist.

See the example case for more details.

  •   Example case: Wrong answer
  •   Files ending in .png are removed but not files with other extensions: Wrong answer
  •   Files starting with out_ are removed but not files with other text at the beginning: Wrong answer
  •   Only files that start with either 'out_0' or 'out_1' and end with '.png'. are deleted from the 'work' directory: Wrong answer
