How to untar/extract a tar.bz2/tar/tar.gz file

To untar/extract a file with different type of extensions , we need to use slightly different options:

1) .tar.bz2
 
            tar -jxvf xyz.tar.bz2
 
2) .tar
 
           tar -xf xyz.tar
 
3) .tar.gz
 
           tar -xzvf archive.tar.gz
 
4) .tar.bz
 
            tar -xzvf archive.tar.bz
