Clearly a test or interview question, based on the content of several questions posted together. Please, nobody give this guy an essay answer!

sekar ramalingam, let's hear your best guess at an answer, and then we will help you refine it.

Hi Sekar,

welcome to the Ranch.

I have one question: how am I supposed to distinguish between your different questions when they all have the same subject? Please

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
