Answer....i Solved This Question 1.But i wasnt able to solve Question 2.

here is Question 2 and Question3
Question 2.

Schedule a job for employee1 which will run at 20 minutes after the hour. call the script and the script must echo the message "hello linux world" and mail it to the root account

Question 3 : Create the directory /home/managers so that only members of the group managers are permitted to read,write and execute inside the new directory. Switch to the user id manager1 and signin by putting the string "manager1" into the file /home/managers/signin.txt. it is important that only managers can enter the directory and write to the signin.txt file.

For question 2: have a look here:
For question 3:

A sidenote: is a community of people that are spending their free time to help other people with their Linux related problems. We are not paid to do this, all of us are volunteers. Demanding urgent help is considered rude here (especially when it comes to homework questions) and will drive people away from reading your threads. Normally you yourself should be able to solve those questions, if you have followed your course and read the provided material. Of course we will help you if you have problems to understand the material (although the first way should be to ask your teacher for better explanations), but we will not do the work for you. Show us what you have done already and where you have problems, that way you will learn more.
