Error in Knowledge Check 35.2

The question is :

"Which of the following commands would change the permissions of the file priv from -rwx------ to 0664?"

and one of the correct answer is:

"chmod -x"

I am no expert, but this command just remove "x" - the execute permission (if any) from all. It does not add "r+w" to group nor "r" to others (world).

Am I missing something?
