    Hello. I want to ask something about options trading. I've recently been exploring Interactive Brokers and I'm not getting the hang of it - let's say I want to SELL 1 option, someone buys Tesla shares

    1 - is this the dollar premium PER SHARE? If I want to SELL 1 option, for someone to buy Tesla stock from me, will the premium be $6.55 per share /am I looking at the right box/?
    2 - are these numbers the volumes?
    3 - is this the price ABOVE which the transaction will be executed /if it reaches it, the option right will be exercised/?

    And also if I SELL 1 option for someone to buy Tesla shares from me, do I have to have 100 Tesla shares purchased or when I sell the option I will have automatically purchased 100 shares?
