'nodev' and 'nodev' option for removable media

How do i actually check whether the 'nosuid' and 'nodev' option are added for removable media in the /etc/fstab file? What are the appropriate commands that i can use?

This shows what is currently mounted and their options; /etc/mtab . Also when you specify the "user" mount option in the /etc/fstab file, then it has as defaults these; nodev, noexec, and nosuid, and I use "noauto,user" so the device or partition will not mount during boot, but then I can do a mount when needed as a normal user.
