    $\begingroup$ You seem to be new here. There is a very strict policy about beginner and homework questions. your question's level of difficulty is only 1% of IIT-JEE level. If you really want an answer then you will have to show whatever you have tried. You will also have to format your question up to the mark with proper grammar. Last but not the least remember pronouns are always capitalized("I" in your comments). $\endgroup$ – user31782 May 2 '14 at 9:30
