I’ve got a question regarding Question 5 on Screen 4 in the Users and permission mission.
The question is
Third scenario. User dq can't enter /home/learn, but has rwx permissions for all the content in /home/learn. Question 5. Can user dq read/list the contents of the home directory of learn?
What I understood from the scenario explanation is that the Others scope for /home/learn has the form __- (with “_” being placeholders), because we only know that the directory cannot be entered (therefore executed) by dq.
Question 5 asks now if the contents of /home/learn can be listed (and therefore read) by dq. But we don’t have any knowledge about whether the Others scope takes the form r_- or -_-. There is no information about the read permissions whatsoever.
So how can we answer this question with certainty? Or am I missing something?
