    Welcome, suryasomesh.

    You're not bothering us in the least. If you have further questions, any questions, no matter how simple you may think they are, please ask us. We'd be more than happy to help you.

    Are you satified with the help you've been given so far? If not, help us to help you. Tells us more about what you don't understand about the difference between was and were.

    All the best.
