    @Sajith Gopalakrishnan Hema ,

    Agree with sharatha.

    The permission struture of windows and sharepoint is different.

    List folder contents is aim to permit viewing and listing of files and subfolders as well as executor of files, inherited by folders only.

    If you want to set unique permissions on folder and related files/subfolders in sharepoint , we need to stop inheriting permissions from parent library, and set "View Only" permission for this folder.

    Unfortunately there is no exact permission levels in SharePoint Online, because restricting at subfolder level is not possible when they have access to main folder, but the other best permission level is "View Only" in SharePoint Online.
