Question Another directory access question

The mode for /home/max/info is
drwx --- --x

There are two files in the info directory
-rw- --- --- financials
-rw- r-- r-- notes

Again, logging in as Zach I should be able to list the info on these files as long as I specify the file names:
ls -l /home/max/info/financial /home/max/info/notes
should list these files:
-rw- --- --- max oubs financials
-rw- r-- r-- max pubs notes

the parent directory modes are:
/home drwx r-x r-x
/home/max drwx r-x r-x
/home/max/info drwx --- --x

The command
ls -l /home/max/info/financial /home/max/info/notes
results in permission denied
I should be allowed to do this as long as /home/max/info has execute access.
Any suggestions greatly appreiated
