comment What is the functional difference between sudo su and sudo -i?
You're not making it much better. sudo -i won't ask for root's password either, so it's not relevant to the question.

And deleting your comments just adds to the confusion.

comment What is the functional difference between sudo su and sudo -i?
No, it will not. sudo runs su as root, and root can su to any user without knowing their password. Fundamental misunderstandings about how the system works deserve a downvote IMO.

comment What is the functional difference between sudo su and sudo -i?
If you run sudo su you are asked for your password, not the root password. The root user doesn't even need to have a password. Regardless, if an admin is using the root password, that doesn't imply that all the regular users know it.

comment Is #!/bin/sh read by the interpreter?
In Perl, if the interpreter is started directly (perl script.pl vs. ./script.pl) then the interpreter will read the shebang line to parse flags such as -w. It's not recommended to rely on this feature though.

comment How do I delete my commands quickly?
@shan23 Read the "Editor commands" section of man tcsh, or use bindkey -l. It looks like it's very different.

These are generic UNIX control codes. The default ubuntu terminal is bash-based, which is different.
