The -o output is RMSF; the -od output is RMSD.

> Is this command sufficient to see the effect of the ligand on each residue?
An index file should not be necessary. By default, the output is per
atom, so use the -res flag if you want the measurements averaged over
all atoms in each residue. The command is sufficient to measure the
RMSD per residue. Whether or not that is sufficient is up to you.
> 3. Furthermore, can you suggest the other analysis tools to see the effect

You should identify the quantities you wish to measure, then read in
the Gromacs manual about the different utility programs available.
You'll learn far more that way.

>> Dear users,
>>> I want to investigate *Ligand effect *on the protein .
>>> To investigation the interaction of protein-ligand:
>>> *RMSD calculations:*
>>> a) RMSD of Backbone
>>> b) RMSD of Backbone+ligand
>>> a) RMSD of Protein
>>> b) RMSD of Protein+ligand
>>> a) RMSD of Protein-H
>>> b) RMSD of Protein-H+ligand
>>> Which one would you recommend ( 1., 2., and 2.choice)?
>> Unless the effect of your ligand is very large (i.e., the whole protein is
>> significantly more or less stable in the presence of the ligand), then
>> likely none of these analyses will be particularly illustrative as they are
>> not very sensitive to small changes. You can get a per-residue RMSD by
>> using g_rmsf -od to see the effect of the ligand on each residue.
>> Otherwise, the most common quantity measured is backbone RMSD.
