Hi Navneet,

You have asked a rather open-ended question.
There are numerable resources available for learning about XAFS analysis 
that are straightforward
to find. Setting the k-range is more specific and governed by several 

The range chosen affects resolution and precision. In general, you would 
like as large a k-range
as you can reasonably obtain. Practically, this is limited by the sample 
(order/disorder, mean-square-
relative-displacement, Debye-Waller term) and by finite limits on beamtime.

My suggestion, as a starting point, is to consider what type of 
materials you plan on studying,
then check the literature for similar systems to see what results others 
have been able to obtain.
