Hey, @ Dinesh,

Could you please give some more information about the code block in your blockchain.

difficulty: QUANTITY - integer of the difficulty for this block.

totalDifficulty: QUANTITY - integer of the total difficulty of the chain until this block.

The total difficulty is the accumulated sum of all blocks difficulty until the block you queried. I recently learned this is the best indicator for the longest chain, i.e., for a client to determine in case, of a fork which chain to stick to. It will stick to the chain with the highest total difficulty.
