I am having trouble understanding the concepts of vertical circular motion , though I solve all the numericals , but I think I am lacking the basic concepts of VCM.
Explain how I can master this topic?????

At what level do you want to "master" it?
Do you want a way to describe the motion all the way round? Do you want to consider the Energy at the top and the bottom? What?

What exactly are you having trouble with?

I am basically having trouble in understanding most of the conceptual questions.!!!

You would need to be a bit more detailed if you want any joy on this thread.
Circular motion in a horizontal plane needs to be understood first. Do you recognise the formula F = v2/r means and appreciate what it implies? You have to get involved in the Maths of this is you want anything but the most basic appreciation of circular motion.
