How can I see exact version number from inside Microsoft's Word RT, Powerpoint RT, Access RT, and Excel RT (not checking the actual .exe file)?

Clicking on "HELP" on the file menu and then selecting "ABOUT..." shows the version information. Or at least in outlook 2007 it does.

In Word 2007 I have to click on the "office" button, go to word options and then select resources from the list. There is an option to see the system/version information there, I don't know if that's the same for 2013.

Edit: Actually, found this link that shows you how to find it.

Have you tried to go to File->Help. This should display the version

File / Account / About Word (similarly for other Office RT apps):
