"tar zvf" is the correct, command tar work without the "-" character too (testing in rhel and same, and debian).

That is correct, this option will work without switches and can be .tar.gz or tgz (Tested using CentOS7): tar cvfz backup-1.tgz (to create) tar ztf backup-1.tgz (to list the contents without extracting/unpacking) the tar.gz can be substituted just fine with .tgz z switch is for handling .tar.gz g zip files, the t switch list the contents without extracting the file, and f specifies the command is to use the archive file name, the -v switch would help to show permissions, size, and timestamp but the answer E could exclude this as the question asks about displaying the contents of the tar file. https://www.hostdime.com/kb/hd/command-line/how-to-tar-untar-and-zip-files
