For creating or removing directories, the user must be positioned above the directory or in the parent directory of the directory, on which the operation is to perform.

A. True

B. False

I had been asked this question in an online interview.

My doubt stems from File Handling Commands: pwd, cd topic in portion The File System of Unix

The correct option is A. True

For explanation I would say: For performing any operation on the file system, the user must be hierarchically above the directory or should be in parent directory of the directory on which the operation is to be performed. Without following this rule, the user will not be able to perform any operation on the file system.
