Raj, I wish you luck, but:

1.  You should be ashamed of yourself, for trying to get strangers
to do your homework.  In addition to this being probably a violation
of your school's honour code, you also in the long run aren't doing
yourself any favours:  How are you going to learn, that way?

2.  You completely failed to heed the warning near the top of "How to
Ask Questions the Smart Way", that says co-authors Rick Moen and Eric
S. Raymond are not a helpdesk.

3.  Actually, it's obvious that you failed to read that essay at all.

Do your homework by yourself.  When you're done with your homework,
consider actually reading our essay.  

Good luck to you.
