prasad, we actually can see the OA very well. I would suggest you not to post them right away and wait a day or 2, after some discussion, before you post them. Otherwise, you may not get many replies as having the OA right away deters people from answering. On a more positive note, welcome aboard

Also, please try to limit your posts to 10 at a time so as not to flood the forum. Thanks again

Agree with Paul, flooding is going to hurt everybody including yourself. Learning is like working out. You need to do it slowly but steadily. Just as one can't build musles over night so is one can't learn it all in a day. Unfortunately there are no quick fixes when it comes to verbal. Welcome aboard.

This problem is discussed here.
