Whats your question?

Ubuntu system requirements are here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements

Security is pretty much down to the sysadmin these days - best practice + updates, plus minimise exposure.

You have used some vague terms - did someone give you this list?

Pricing?? Seriously?? Ubuntu full version is legally available at zero cost from Canonical.

Multitasking is a given. Cost is $0. Security is as good as the system administrator can be.

What do you mean by "Network capacity" and "Types of interface"?

If you are doing a computing course that is asking you to establish whether or not a particular modern desktop OS can multi-task, I suggest laying a complaint with the provider, their regulating body if they have one, and asking for a refund!

I'm not sure what you mean by capacity.

However as mentioned above, graphical and command line

Graphical interfaces for linux (the common interfaces) are Gnome, KDE and XFCE
