Assign permission to workflow tasks for read only users

I was creating a state machine approval workflow which uses assign flexi task to create workflow tasks for approval.

I am assigning tasks for ad group which has read only access to the site. When the corresponding users clicks on the link they are getting access denied error. My query is why the users are not even able to view the task properties with "Read" Access. Users are able to see the item in the workflow task list but when they click on it getting "Access denied error".


I am admitting that users needs contribute rights to approve the task. But in my scenario they are read only users, i don't want to assign contribute permission at the site level. Instead i am ok with assigning permission at the Workflow task list level or task item level. Can anybody please help me , how to grant contribute permission at Workflow task level or item level during state machine approval process.
