your restarting from step3
but ur are not doing any thing in step1 just coping from ps to ps

if u were not using , i wont give error

if steps are interrelated on that time if any previous step is abended,
we cann't restart from that step onwards

I am intrigued here.

You are not allowed to submit jobs, yet you are asking questions regarding Job Control Language.

Am I being cynical, or are my thoughts of HOMEWORK wrong ?

I dont think there will be any error, because restart parameter is meant for this thing only. Even to execute random steps u can use a utility viz. IEBEDIT
