I need to get approve , edit and read permissions for a site .How can i find this?


Use EffectiveBasePermissions to get permissions of the user. Example:

_spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl +"/_api/Web/effectiveBasePermissions"

In any case the end result is high and low permission masks use SP.BasePermissions().has as can be seen in below example:

function checkPermissions() {
return jQuery.ajax({
    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl +"/_api/Web/effectiveBasePermissions",
    type: "GET",
    dataType: "json",
    headers: {
        Accept: "application/json;odata=verbose"

checkPermissions.done(function (data, textStatus, jqXHR) {
    var managePerms = new SP.BasePermissions();

    var manageLists = managePerms.has(SP.PermissionKind.manageLists);
    var manageGroup = managePerms.has(SP.PermissionKind.createGroups);
    var manageWeb = managePerms.has(SP.PermissionKind.manageWeb);
    alert("Manage Lists: " + manageLists);
    alert("Manage Group: " + manageGroup);
    alert("Manage Web: " + manageWeb);        

Try ajax call with URL format as https://yoursite/_api/web/roleassignments/getbyprincipalid(userid)/roledefinitionbindings
