    Welcome to the forum, palak. Please try to use captal letters and punctuation as appropriate, and leave a space after punctuation marks.

    In future, please start a new thread for each different question.

    #2 This advertising slogan suggests that you are very close to your future partner - only a phone call (the one that you will be making to the dating agency) separates you.

    #3 This means that inefficient organisation of your information could cause you to lose the chance to try for an interview for a job.
