Hello As there were only 24 sub-questions in the question posted, i answered all of those. 2 of them had no graphs..so if you can post the graphs, i can help with those too.

I hope that helped. - Kindly Click the green "ACCEPT" button on that answer, so that i get paid by the website, for my time and resources used answering you.

Hello and thank you for responding. I can try to figure the 2 questions with the graphs myself however I posted all 40 questions in my question area. I do not know if it showed up or not but I would like to pay for the full 40 questions. Questions 25 through 40 are harder for me to answer so I am not to worried about the two questions with the graphs. Please try and answer questions 25-40 so that I may click the accept button. Thank you once again.

Hello As i informed before, i have already answered the questions that were listed first. All people...be it Question-asker(you) and expert(me in this case) see the same question page and can see what has got posted or not. Both see the same detail about questions and answers.

So kindly "ACCEPT" so that i get paid by the website, for my time and resources used answering you.

Regarding other new questions, having a quick look at them, i think i can help you with those too but you would need to open a separate question thread for the same. Hope this helps Regards

How can I make sure that you are the expert answering my questions if I post a new thread? I would like for you to answer my questions please. I felt that your answers to my first questions were correct.

Ok Dr. Amit. I will do that. I must inform you that there is a word limit to the area that one posts their question which is why my 40 questions were cut-off the first time. This time, question #40 is cut-off so can you please refer to my previous posts to look at the full questions? I will now click accept for questions 1-24 and I will submit my second post for you. Thank you.
