The student is asking if a line consisting of five ECE@UT and associated
spaces is a line of output, or if the 2nd (or 4th, for example) instance of
ECE@UT is a line of output.

I thought it was clear that a line is a line and a piece of a line is not
a line.

But, since several of you aren't sure if a piece of a line is not a line,
I decided to spam you all with the answer: No, a piece of a line is not a line.

Good luck finishing the 5th program.
