this permission set in below is useful guide e.g. "Contribute" should be good as shared by David, the "Edit" has this and the Edit permission. And do note that "Edit" is the assigned to the Members group by default.

...and for more info on the different group and roles see the below. Other roles will have even greater access like Owner, Hierarchy Managers, Designers and Approvers.
