Cisco IOS Software, 7200 Software (C7200-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 15.0(1)M, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

However when I run the monitor capture command, I do not see what is shown in the screenshot. I mean I cannot type monitor capture 1 Interface .....

R1#monitor capture ?

Monitor commands are used with packet sniffing programs like Wireshark

You will plug your computer to the output port

I tried to reproduce what you have and got the same thing.

My guess at this point is the IOS version. I'll dig a little deeper. Meanwhile, check this link here

SUMMARY STEPS
1.    enable  
2.    monitor capture capture-name access-list access-list-name  
3.    monitor capture capture-name limit duration seconds  
4.    monitor capture capture-name interface interface-name both
5.    monitor capture capture-name buffer circular size bytes
6.    monitor capture capture-name start
7.   monitor capture capture-name export file-location/file-name
8.   monitor capture capture-name stop  
9.    end

I initially thought the configuration was on an ASA
The wireshark reference applies to low end devices that don't support Embedded Packet Capture.

The capture needs to be created first and based on the command syntax, "1" is supposed to be the capture name. In the IOS version used, name is not an option after "monitor capture...". The only available options are buffer and point.
