comment Why use `sudo yum install <pkgs>` when I can use `yum install <pkgs>`?
1. Yes, sudo will work only if its owner is root (which is always the case in all distributions unless you messed up something yourself) 2. Yes (it was especially relevant years ago when mainframes were used by big number of people and users with root access wanted to allow some trusted users to execute some often used and not very dangerous commands). I'd suggest you to google about setuid, sudo and sudoers.
