I cannot tell exactly because you haven't provided the <Location>
tatements of your httpd config that contains the SVNParentPath

Assuming you are using <Location /svn>, it seems the name of your
repository is 'database'.

Dump files contain only paths which are *inside* the repository,
i.e. paths shown by a command such as:
  svn ls

It seems E_Learning is a directory in the root directory of the
repository, so filtering the dump file should probably look like this:

svndumpfilter exclude /E_Learning/Development/Project1  < repo.dump > filteredDump.dump

However, if you were using <Location /svn/database> or <Location
/svn/database/E_Learning> the paths inside the dump file would be

If you don't really understand how this all works, I suggest that
you create a small repository to test with and try out some commands
until you understand their behaviour, and then tackle the time intensive
task of filtering large dump files.
