       The content of $ML is "/media/lad".  There's a directory /media/lad/p24. Typing the command
            ls $ML/p24<TAB-key>
       a backslash is put befor "$" and the line looks like:
            ls \$ML/p24/
       Typing the ENTER key shows:
            ls: cannot access '$ML/p24/': No such file or directory.

        Create a variable containing a directory name. Put a subdirectory there under.         Type a "$" and the variable followed by a slash, the name of the subdirectora and the TAB-key.

The OS is Linux Mint 20
