Anil, can you try to refocus your question?

You have to be more specific than "Do you know how to do this?" because 
that can invite really flippant answers like "Yes" or "No".  That's not 
going to be useful for you.  Instead, try focusing us on what problems 
you're having.

>From your message with Alan, I see a general problem statement with 
several requirements necessary for a solution.  It really looks like a 
homework assignment.  We are not allowed to go into a particular solution; 
we're going to have to limit ourselves to reduce the confusion you have 
with the problem, but that's it: you're going to have to do your own work 
on the problem.

Is there any part in your assignment that you don't understand?  Is there 
any part in there that you do understand?  Do you understand all the terms 
used in the problem?  At what point are you getting stuck?  Have you 
worked on any other problem that's similar to the one you're looking at 

Good luck.
