android:id: This is the ID which uniquely identifies the layout.

android:baselineAligned: This must be a boolean value, either “true” or “false” and prevents the layout from aligning its children’s baselines.

android:baselineAlignedChildIndex : When a linear layout is part of another layout that is baseline aligned, it can specify which of its children to baseline align

android:divider : This is drawable to use as a vertical divider between buttons. You use a color value, in the form of “#rgb”, “#argb”, “#rrggbb”, or “#aarrggbb”.

android:gravity : This specifies how an object should position its content, on both the X and Y axes. Possible values are top, bottom, left, right, center, center_vertical, center_horizontal etc.

android:orientation: This specifies the direction of arrangement and you will use “horizontal” for a row, “vertical” for a column. The default is horizontal.
