This type of stuff is ideally accomplished with sudo. sudo has a unique
configuration syntax, but it is well worth learning how to use it.

Even i have used  command for changing the ownership as

chown "guest" /root -R      Still it is giving error.

Don't do this, ever. There is never, ever a good reason to change the
ownership of /root. Besides it won't accomplish what you want because
that is not how UNIX permissions work. You should look info on UNIX
