Dear Mahesh,

This seems a very broad question, a mailing list might not be the best 
medium to address it. I would suggest browsing the archives of this list 
and the mailing list riscv-hw-dev. You can look at the vcd dumps from 
simulation and probe the various signals using gtkwave and compare what 
you see with browsing the Verilog source code. You can also take a look 
at the Chisel source and envisage the various configurations that are 
possible, You can read papers written by the RISCV authors and access 
their conference presentations in Powerpoint slide format. If more 
background is needed there are books such as:

Computer Organization and Design RISC-V Edition: The Hardware Software 
Interface (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and 
Design) Paperback – 22 May 2017
by David A. Patterson (Author), John L. Hennessy (Author)

However I am not affiliated with or marketing any specific book.
