Why we have not done 3rd derivative test..3rd derivative will give different results

How will it give different result?
It will give same result as the selected ans, isnot it?

f′′(x)=36x2−96x+48

at x=0,f′′(x)=48>0 it means that  x=0 is local minima.

but at x=2,f′′(x)=0 so we can't apply second derivative test.

So, we can apply third derivative test

3rd derivative = 72x- 96

At x=2, 3rd derivative >0 therefore local maxima? But ans do have 2 as local maxima.

What i am doing wrong?

No. If $f^{'''}(x_0)\neq0$ then we get neither minima nor maxima at the point $x=x_0$
