b) Add /home/user/test/bin to the $PATH and run ./foo.
c) Run /home/user/test/bin/foo.
d) Either a or b.
e) Either b or c.

b) 655
c) 011
d) 644
e) None of the above

Errata: The test has the correct answer as B, 655. However, the answer should be E None of the above. umask value is calculated by turning off given bits (permission are calculated by performing logical AND on negateted value of umask). The correct solution is 0666 & ~011 = 0666. 011 was discarding +x for group and others, since default permisions are rw-rw-rw- umask doesn't affect file permissions.
