Hi Haroon,

I realize you were just trying to be helpful but..

You are a new forum member and as such probably were unaware of the forum policy for the Exams and Studying forum. It reads Please note that if you are looking for assistance with an exam-style question, you must attempt the question yourself before asking for help. You can then state the answer you have so far and explain which aspect you need help with. Anyone posting exam-style questions expecting the answer to be given to them will have their posts removed. Repeat offenders will be banned from the forum.

And actually, you did not answer Dev2020's only question which was
