Hi I have a zip file which contains one pdf file and the pdf file is password protected. I am able to view the contents of zip file but unable to extract the pdf file and whenever I try to open pdf file it is asking password.

Kindly suggest how to extract the pdf file from zip file successfully.

The simple solution is to enter the password
If you don't have the password ask the person from whom you received the password protected zip file.

the pdf file is password protected.
well that has nothing to do with the extraction of zip file.

whenever I try to open pdf file it is asking password.
That's obvious please ask the concern person who sent you the pdf for password.

Well..since you are asking only how to extract that .pdf file from .zip - your program that you use to view it should give you option to "extract" it.
