What paths are you referring too?
best way for a command is set it be only root and then using visudo edit the sudoers file allow group access to the command.

Looks like homework, but doesn't fit the pattern. Most homework posters never make it past maybe 5 posts.

Where did you get the idea that you should expect replies in under 1 hour? If you post a question at 6:30 PST:
The west coast is eating dinner.
The east coast is on their way to bed
Europe is sound asleep
and in the middle east they are just having breakfast.

This doesn't leave many people to answer your urgent question.

Q#2: By setting the permissions and maybe group ownership.
man chmod
man chown

Read some of the OPs post and about 50 percent look to be homework. One actually states the question ask was homework. We don't give the answer to homework directly. If nice and polite we can point you in the right direction. Using the search tool here and searching google can result in many answers. using the ' man ' tool can even provide info even if it is not a command. Now if the answer does not come up on the first page it my be found 10 or 20 pages down. I know one time I was searching for something and took me like 25 pages deep of 10 results per page to get the answer I needed.
