Hi Barbara,

thanks for the reply. I had an error with the command you gave. But I know
what it does and slightly modified it. It put an extra entry in the TOC.
Finally I got rid of the \appendix and used following commands to achieve
the goals




{\bf APPENDIX}\\

‎"This was quite the most incredible event that has ever happened in my
life. It was almost incredible as if you fired a 15-in shell at a tissue
paper and it bounced back and hit you" - Rutherford recalling his discovery
of atomic nucleus in an experiment that involved the reflection of high
energy alpha particles from a thin foil.
