Dear rohan2345,

I'm happy to respond.

My friend, please do NOT start a brand-new thread for a question that has already been posted on GMAT Club before. Please ALWAYS search for a question extensively before posting anything. Chances are very good that any questions you have already have been addressed in a pre-existent post, and if you have more questions, that pre-existent post is the best place to ask your questions. Only start a new thread if you are certain that the question has never been posted on GMAT Club before (virtually all official questions and all questions from major test prep are already here).

Does all this make sense?
Mike
