«Artusi» 25/26: What's the difference between the options -r and -rf?

Hello everyone!

I do not get it and did not find a proper answer on google to the following question:

What is the difference between the options

rm -r and rm -rf?

-f means force. You can check the manual:

man rm

force will also remove files with read-only permission (without prompting)
