Keannu, the use of so many different colours, bold, and underlining in your post makes it really hard to read and understand. You were only querying "relate to". It would have been sufficient to leave the piece all in black with no bold and no underlining, and then just posted your question after a paragraph break.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
