How does accepting an answer work?

First of all this is not the programming question. And please pardon me for this question. I am just 10 days old on stack overlow. This is a great learning portal.

My profile shows 0 % accept rate, probably I am not accepting any answers. But there is no option to do this. Where to find this option?

I want to close my answered question. Is there any option for this and if yes then where is it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Click the green check mark next to the answer that you want to accept. It's great that you notice the accept rate - far too many new users don't. – Anders Abel Jul 20 '11 at 12:15

when someone answers your question then there is a disabled tick mark just below rating column, if you check that tick mark, that will consider that you have accepted that answer.

and I am not sure about how to close a question but I think it is one of the privileges you get when you gather sufficient points for that privilege.
