Event-by-event intermittency analysis of Toy Monte Carlo events is performed in the scenario of high multiplicity events as is the case at recent colliders RHIC and LHC for AA collisions. A power law behaviour of Normalized Factorial Moments (NFM), $F_{q}$ as function of number of bins ($M$) known as intermittency, is a signature of self-similar fluctuations. Dependence of NFM on the detector efficiencies and on the presence of fluctuations have been studied. Results presented here provide a baseline to the experimental results and clarity on the application of efficiency corrections to the experimental data.

List of changes

As suggested by the referee we have made following changes in the manuscript as given below
1.) Introduction:
Seventh line updated as; Normalized factorial moments (NFM) of bin multiplicities as function of .............

2.) Method of Analysis:
First line rearranged as; A sample of 250K high multiplicity Toy Monte Carlo events are generated with two parameters...........
Third line; TRandom3() function of ROOT ........removed to create some space.
Symbols are defined after Eq.(1)and Eq.(2) is now included in the text
Last two - three lines are also modified to make the things more clear

3.) Observations:
Figure. 1 is updated to make the text clear in the first paragraph.
Eq.(3) is now Eq.(2) and this is also modified in terms of Eq.(1). Symbols are also correctly defined.
TMC is now written as ToyModel

4.) Conclusions: No change
