Here A option is wrong because 6 means read and write permission are allowed only not execute permission.

For groups read and execute permission are allowed so option c is also wrong.

So answer should be B.

0 --- 000 All types of access are denied
1 --x 001 Execute access is allowed only
2 -w- 010 Write access is allowed only
3 -wx 011 Write and execute access are allowed
4 r-- 100 Read access is allowed only
5 r-x 101 Read and execute access are allowed
6 rw- 110 Read and write access are allowed
7 rwx 111 Everything is allowed

652 = -(rw-)(r-x)(-w-)

Therefore, the file has write permission (-w-) to others only valid from the given options.

Answer = B because Write permission for others showed by 2.

Which indicate by 2 in 652 and remain answer are wrong.

Executable x- 1.
Read r- 2.
Write w- 4.

U-User (owner).

The order is UGO.

Now only others is matching with options i.e., 2 - write permission for others.
