I've looked at paper Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption by Bethencourt, Sahai, Waters and see this an answer here for the explanation of DecrypNode for a leaf node.

I could understand the derivation of this $f_n$ for a leaf node but not for a non-leaf node in the $s$.

I could not understand to move from step 2 to 3 and from step 4 to 5.

I will be very grateful if someone can kindly explain the same.

Thanks and Regards
