Definitely.

It is not that difficult to answer. Simply type grep --help and wc --help and you will see that grep searches for patterns in files, while wc counts bytes, words and lines in a file. If you actually run this with contigs.fasta present it should be pretty obvious what it does.

I have never done coding before so all you said is totally new to me. I would appreciate if a detailed description is given as answer to my question. Thanks

We are not here to help with homework assignments. Whoever gave you this problem to solve had a certain educational goal you should achieve on your own. Many of us on this forum are educators, and I have no intent of undermining my colleagues' goals for you by giving you a complete solution.

Besides, there is no coding here. This is just a concatenation of the two well known Unix/Linux commands, for which I have already given you clues.
