example : - space=(cyl,(1,2),rlse)

in the above example 1 is for primary allocation, and 2 for secondary allocation, and rlse parameter is for release the space after closing the dataset.

can any one correct me my assumption is correct or not?

and also i want to know about 15 extents for secondary?

I'd suggest you read the suggested material and post a reply here if there is something you do not understand in what you read.
