the help says

  Usage: access -MODE FILE
    MODE is one or more of rwx.  Exit successfully if FILE exists and is
    readable (r), writable (w), or executable (x).

as i see it, you've given it three file names, viz., 2.0 and 2 of

the help fairly clearly suggests it's only interested in one file

perhaps you're thinking of a different access program?
