Hello @NaveenRacha !
Due to the NDA I cannot discuss anything directly related to the examination scenarios or questions, However - I can say that you should read the instructions and questions very carefully to understand the demand of the question's objective. All that you need to troubleshoot a scenario is provided by the exam setup - If you dont see something eg the extra disks - most surely it is not needed either. You dont need a new disk everytime to create an LVM ( unless you are asked to do so ). So, you should check the existing disk for available space and then use fdisk or parted to create a new LVM partition. 

I will suggest you to revisit the LVM topic from the course and see if it now helps.

Yes understand not needed new disk every time to create a LVM , I don't know we can create pvs from disk partition as well,Since i have created swap space from new disk , no disk left and thought we couldn't create lvm ,  Now i am cleared we can create a lvm disk partitions as well, Thanks for your reply again.
