    Describe a Graphical User Interface you have seen on the internet, such as a shopping application, banking application, ticket ordering application, etc...

    Now isn't pretty much every website that offers some kind of service in return a GUI?

    a GUI is "Graphical User Interface". It is one way for presenting an interactive application to the user. Most websites could be considered GUI's. However, some are more-so than others. Whether a service is offered does not dicate it being a GUI.

    Does the user interact with it in a graphical manner? I think so.

    well, open up your DOS prompt (start > run > "cmd") that would be a console... A graphical manner would be your web browser, word processor, etc. Text is not graphical... "windows" is graphical.
