First we find the solution for the homogeneous system

y^{(3)}-6y^{(2)}+11y^{(1)}-6y=0

The corresponding characteristic equation is

r^3-6r^2+11r-6=0

Three roots are

r_1=1

r_2=2

r_3=3

Then the solution for the homogeneous system is

y_c(t)=c_1e^{x}+c_2e^{2x}+c_3e^{3x}

where

y_1(t)=e^{x}

y_2(t)=e^{2x}

y_3(t)=e^{3x}

Then we follow to find the required solution to the nonhomogeneous equation. We use Variation of Parameters. We have

W[y_1,y_2,y_3]=2e^{6x}

W_1[y_1,y_2y_3]=e^{5x}

W_2[y_1,y_2y_3]=-2e^{4x}

W_3[y_1,y_2，y_3]=e^{3x}

and

g(x)=2\frac{e^{3x}}{e^{x}+1}

And then we have the following integration

\int \frac{W_1\cdot g(x)dx}{W[y_1,y_2,y_3]}=\int\frac{e^{2x}}{e^{x}+1}

\int\frac{e^{2x}}{e^{x}+1}=e^{x}-\ln(e^{x}+1)+c_4

\int \frac{W_2\cdot g(x)dx}{W[y_1,y_2,y_3]}=-2\int\frac{e^{x}}{e^{x}+1}

-2\int\frac{e^{x}}{e^{x}+1}=-2\ln(e^{x}+1)+c_5

\int \frac{W_3 \cdot g(x)dx}{W[y_1,y_2,y_3]}=\int\frac{1}{e^{x}+1}

\int\frac{1}{e^{x}+1}=x-\ln(e^{x}+1)+c_6

And finally, the required general solution $y(t)$

y(t)=\sum_{i=1}^3 y_i(t)\cdot\int\frac {W_i\cdot g(x)dx}{W[y_1,y_2,y_3]}

Small Error: $W_2(x)$ should be $2e^{4x}$.

For this case I don't think so since when we expand the matrix, we have to times $(-1)^{i+j}$

Oh, you're right. My mistake.

Also for $(20)$, $\ln(e^x)$ can be simplified as $\ln(e^x)=x$.

Thanks again and I will modify it

Since the solution is incomplete after Y(x),
I am attaching a copy of my solution

Sorry what do you mean by "the solution is incomplete after Y(x)"
I did write a bit more on the exam (expanding the summation) but I think one should be able to get full marks if he integrates everything and mention how the solution is composed.(Given that the integral is correct)

The only thing which was missing in the solution, is the final answer, but it warrants neither such claim, nor uploading your solution.

General remark:
It would be better to denote "parameters" by uppercase letters $C_1(x)$, $C_2(x)$,... and constants by lowercase letters $c_1$, $c_2$,...
