Answer
Hi Pratima
This is a designed experiment similar to homework and I do not homework. It is not fair for me to do your work for you but I will help you complete it only if you will answer the directions yourself. I will then comment on them and tell you whether I believe you are correct. I am one of the few experts on this forum that will do this
