No, it is NOT a valid question.

Because:
  • Looks like homework. Posting homework is against LQ rules. Actually asking for help about your homework isn't that bad, but just posting it *and sit there and expect that we will do it for you*, that is offensive. And,
  • The OP didn't show anything to prove that (s)he tried first to find the answer doing his/her own research.

Maybe you should review LQ rules and this before start trolling around.

EDIT: sorry mods, couldn't resist the urge to feed the troll :-/

And I couldn't resist the urge to close this thread - it's a) a
most likely a verbatim homework question and b) the whole discussion
seems rather derailed.
