Question What files do not contain user data?

I went to a job interview, and one of the questions that were put to me was "What files do not contain user data?", and response options were:

1. /etc/passwd
2. /etc/pasword
3. /etc/group
4. /etc/shadow
5. /etc/gshadow

I chose "2. /etc/password" and I think that is correct or not?
