Recreate a Admin account

Now as you said that you have forgotten the admin password. So we are left with only one option now that is to create a new admin account. so follow the given steps now Restart your MAC > Press and hold apple button and S after you hear chime sound > Then in the text prompt enter the commands and make sure to enter every line on a new line that is you have to press enter at the end of every line.
* mount -uw /
* rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
* shutdown -h now
Then restart your MAC and you will be ready with a new admin account.
