How to stop `Xorg` server?

ug flag

When I start an Xorg server with the following command:

$ sudo Xorg -noreset +extension GLX +extension RANDR +extension RENDER :1 -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I get output like the following:

The Xorg server is running. But, how do I stop it? I tried Ctrl+C, but it doesn't work.

I am doing this in an Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop

What OS & release are you using? Your package details provided in your paste don't seem to *align* with any supported release of Ubuntu (it's like you've bits of various release; or haven't applied all upgrades; ie. 1.20.8 applies to install media; but should have been updated on a Ubuntu system)

Sorry for missing that info. Will add that to the question

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
