1. what is the hierarchy of exchange database? 
Wrong forum. Ask on a Microsoft Exchange forum or ask your Exchange Administrator.

2. what exchange versions are available till starting to end?

No idea what you mean with this question.

Supported Exchange versions are listed in NetBackup 7 Application/Database Agent (CL) .    

3. i wanna know the concept of backup selection for exchange policies?
See this topic in NBU for Exchange manual:
Adding backup selections to an Exchange policy
The 'Notes' column in Table 4-16 explains what each directive means. 

PS: You have not aswered this question yet:
WHY did you create a new user?
The type of questions asked remains exactly the same....

1.what is the hierarchy of exchange database?

=> pls elaborate more, Exchange is mix of Databases, (Mailbox Databases, Public Folders, Addess Book etc. For further information on Exchange, go through msexchange.org forum)

2.what exchange versions are available till starting to end?

1.0
4.0
5.0
5.5
2000
2003
2007
2010
2013 (Release Preview)

3.i wanna know the concept of backup selection for exchange policies?

This is perfectly described in Admin guide you are referring to. Presntly NBU support backup for Exchange 2003/2007/2010 And selectino differs from version to version

For 2010 where DAG is implemented, We need to specify DAG etc.

Generally Information Store is the backup selection specified for backup, but ifmany databases exist we, can specify their names as well.

With Hierarchy ,I mean the order in which the flow occurs.

I mean at top we have Microsoft information store and what under that?

1. What version of Exchange is in your environment?

2. IS Exchange in your environment?

3. Do you even have an environment?

4. Are you the same user who registered the account with the username NIKHIL2346565959?

You have Exchange doubts, not NetBackup.

You need to ask your Exchange Hierarchy questions on an Exchange forum.

Else, ask your Exchange Admin to log into the Exchange Admin console and show you the layout/hierarchy.
