I guess you need to find the difference between mousehover and click first then only you will be able to understand that in technical terms

    Hi Namit,
    Sometimes, sub menu items are getting rendered in DOM when you mouse hover on main menu. In that case, direct xpath will not work to click on sub menu. You need to mouse hover on main menu.
