I am not able to understand on how can I create this view B-B from the front view of the block.
In general, for a unique view such as B-B, you will need to create a custom view in the part file.
In the part file, select the face noted by the "1" in your attached image. Click the "normal to" view button. If you need to rotate the view while normal to the face press Alt-arrow keys.
Press the space bar to activate the "orientation" dialog. Click on the "new view" icon at the top of the dialog and give your view a name. This view is now available in your drawing view property manager.

Thanks for that reminder. Relative view is one of the great tools that just haven't made it into my habitual work flow.
Hi guys I am getting this dimesion X as 1.89 in but it should be 1.88 , could you please have a look
I downloaded and opened your part file. Using the measure tool SW2013 says the length is 1.89289221 inches. The measurement shown in your attached screen shot matches the length in the part file.
Take a look at your part file and measure the edge of interest - either with the measure tool or insert a reference dimension. To me it looks like your drawing is showing exactly what it thinks it is supposed to be showing.
The true length of the edge is 1.89 inches.
The projected length of that edge onto the normal face in the drawing view is 1.88 inches. If you want to show the projected length you change the "Dimension Type" in the view property manager from true to projected. If you use projected, make sure to denote that in the view so it is understood.
