    The opening brace at line 33 (before \Large) isn't closed. And I don't understand why you are using braces after \bf. This control sequence isn't a macro with parameter. This is very often mistake of LaTeX users. – wipet Dec 13 '14 at 18:55
  • should i add comment directly without using braces – user68949 Dec 13 '14 at 18:57

You aren't using \normalsize, \large, and \Large properly: they act as switches and affect everything in the current scope, not just the material in the subsequent { ... } brace group. The macro \bf isn't fully supported under LaTeX (it's a Plain-TeX command); use \bfseries instead. The instruction \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.1} isn't working the way you're using it. I suggest you load the setspace package and issue the command \setstretch{1.1} instead. Finally, I would add the instruction \thispagestyle{empty} to the page in question, as title pages typically do not show a page number.

    @user68949 - what's the error message, on which line does it occur, and which TeX distribution are you running? (I get no error or warning messages when running this code with MacTeX2014.) – Mico Dec 13 '14 at 19:37
