I am working with ubuntu16.04. While working with terminal i had seen that my keyboard keys typing different signs. For example

Typing at symbol (shift+2) displays double quote (") 
Typing at symbol (shift+') atTheRate (@) 
Typing at symbol (shift+3) Euro (£)


I restarted my system but still it's showing same.
