Hello Everyone,

if we log on to unix server how do we find that what permissions/roles and priveleges are assigned to any particular user.

Looking at user privileges from a unix perspective, there are only two kinds of users:
1. root
2. everyone else

You could give other users more privileges by adding them to different groups - but essentially there are just the two categories.
