(This question refers to the IPv4 client, not the IPv6 client.) (Hint: configuration files are kept under the directory /etc.)

It is for a school assignment. I have to use man pages to find it. I believe it is the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf and I believe it is the dhclient(8) man page, but there is also the dhclient.conf(5) man page. Am I right?

You're correct.

Both manpages refer to the same thing - one to the DHCP client, and one to its configuration.

I think it will help you to understand if you do some reading on what manpage sections are.
