### Alignment

Sir,

The following are doubts w.r.t .cls file:

1. How to align the "contents" text to right side of the page
2. How to give horizontal lines after "chapter 1" and before "chapter name" in first chapter (or corresponding chapter in general).
3. Similarly how to align the "chapter 1" and "chapter name" to right side of the page beside to page number.

Please post a minimal working example.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Welcome to the forum!

We don't know which class file you use. Please tell us the name of the class, and it would be meaningful to post a code example of your document to change. Link: minimal working example.

What is the XXXXX that is written inside these brackets?

\documentclass{XXXXX}

Post the smallest amount of code you can that shows the problem you are trying to correct. That is needed to give you specific advice.

Here is an example using the titlesec package:

`\usepackage{titlesec}\titleformat{\chapter}[display]  {\normalfont\huge\bfseries\raggedleft}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}  {20pt}{\Huge}`

Adjust as you desire. The command `\raggedleft` does the right alignment.

You could add a line break with a title rule, `\\[0.5ex]\titlerule`, that is,

`\titleformat{\chapter}[display]  {\normalfont\huge\bfseries\raggedleft}{%   \chaptertitlename\ \thechapter\\[0.5ex]\titlerule}  {20pt}{\Huge}`

Regarding the page header style, you may play with this and change it:

`\providepairofpagestyles{thesisSimple}{%\clearpairofpagestyles%\automark[chapter]{chapter}\ihead{\headmark}% Inner header\ohead[\pagemark]{\pagemark}% Outer header}\ifoot{}% Inner footer\ofoot{}% Outer footer\pagestyle{thesisSimple}\providepairofpagestyles[thesisSimple]{thesis}{%\automark*[section]{}%}\providepairofpagestyles[thesisSimple]{review}{%	\ofoot[\ttitle/\authorname]{\ttitle/\authorname}	\ifoot[\today]{\today}}`
