This looks like homework assignment. We won't do this for you. If there is something you don't understand, ask a question and someone may answer but we won't do your homework for you

@ Jean-Karim Heriche well I know how to what % identity and its calculations. I am not able to get the formula for percentage similarity calculation. Can anyone help me with it?

Similarity between amino-acids is typically defined by the substitution matrix used to produce the alignment.
