options 4) and 5) are mutually exclusive with options 1) 2) 3). If either one is true, the other is false. For class-level inner-classes, not method local inner classes, the class has full access to final and instance variables.

Inner class in above question means regular inner class defined inside class.
It can access all variable of enclosing class as it exists only with an enclosing instance.
For inner class defined inside method can not access local variables defined inside method however it can access final local variable. It can access encolsing instance members.
Hope this helps.
