Today i was downloading a file in terminal but due to some reason i had to stop that by using the command ctrl+z. So what is the command to see/recover the stopped things in terminal.

Type fg in terminal. That should bring the "paused" process in the foreground again.

To list all jobs that are running in background type jobs.

If you want to reactivate a certain job from that queue, type fg %i, where i is the number of the job on the list, e.g. fg %2. (If you do not specify %i, fg reactivates the last job, usually marked with a little +.)
