How to display the first 20 lines of a file?

By default, the head command displays the first 10 lines from a file. If we change the option of head, then we can display as many lines as we want.
head -20 filename
An alternative solution is using the sed command
sed ’21,$ d’ filename
The d option here deletes the lines from 21 to the end of the file
