Can anyone tell me exact meaning what this sentence try to tell?

Think of a product you would like to sell on the web. Imagine you sell only predefined packages of various quantities of components. Everything you sell is red in colour. You will only need three basic components. But you offer to sell them in four or more different combination packages.

I am not able to understand meaning of whole paragraph.. In First sentence, they are one Product, in Second Line, they are telling predefined packages of various quantities of Components... Forth Line is saying that need Three basic Components.. Last line is saying Sell them in different combination packages. So what is meaning of this? –  Hakoo Desai Oct 1 '12 at 10:13
@HakooDesai: What does the question have to do with the English language? You understand the words and grammar, right? The question of what complex idea, if any, this combination of thoughts expresses is not a question about the language in which those thoughts are expressed. If you translated each sentence into German, the question would be the same. –  David Schwartz Oct 1 '12 at 10:21
