    C[0,1] means continous functions defined for the closed interval 0 to 1. Sup metric means the distance between two functions f and g is defined as the sup |f(x)-g(x)| over that interval.

    it means the distance between two functions is the furthest apart their graphs ever get, over any point of the domain.
