man rpm

-U upgrades or installs a package to a newer version AND removes all other versions
-v gives you the output as the command is working
-h makes the display tidier by putting progress markers as the package is unpacked.

please read the rpm man page
Code:
man rpm

One suggestion for all the members, kindly do not solve homework type queries for the New Users, otherwise they won't be able to learn i think!!
