How can I disable dnsmasq listen port 53 on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS?

By default the DNS Server of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will be, i.e., localhost.

Therefore, system will forward DNS query to the localhost first, and forward to the DNS server which obtained from the DHCP server afterward.

Actually, I didn't prefer this method, so that I would like to turn off  this mechanism via steps were listed below:

1. Open /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

2. To disable dnsmasq

3. Restart NetworkManager

4. Examine /etc/resolv.conf
