Welcome Kajal! Your voice is good but there are 3 things we would like you to fix in your recording set up:

1) we need a mono track; your test is in stereo (two tracks)
2) we need a bit rate of 128 kbps constant; your test is 109 kbps variable
3) we aim at a volume of 89 decibels ; you test is a bit loud at 92.7 decibels

1. Mono track. If you are using audacity, this is easy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmx0q7IfLiw&feature=youtu.be

2.Bit rate. If you are using Audacity this is easy to fix. https://youtu.be/K2JWKadgtdE if you are not using Audacity tell us what you are using please.

3 . Volume. also easy, just back away from the microphone an inch or two and this will reduce the volume. Or turndown the gain at your microphone.

So... please fix these 3 things, make another test, callit TEST 2, upload and put the link in this thread so I will see it quickly. You are almost there, don't give up. :D
All I'm saying is that the house doesn't fill up with annoying fruit flies when I buy donuts

Your TEST 2 has fixed the bit rate ! But your volume has now dropped to 82.2 decibels. We use the Checker program to check volume and other things https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKVOYsaDoRo&feature=youtu.be It is a tiny program written just for us. If you are using Audacity I can recommend others just let me know.

So, please increase your volume to around 89 decibels (come up about 7 decibels), make another test, call it TEST 3, upload and I will check it for you quickly!!! you are almost there, :D
