We have created two context one "context-a" and another one "context-b" in the primary asa5520 and failover is working properly with secondary asa5520 but users can't communicate with the outside . But from Primary ASA's context-a and admin context we are able to ping outside like with outside interface we are able to ping any public ip, (right now we are not using context-b). If we are trying ping from user pc then we are not able to ping to the outside. Right now we are using only one isp link and the gateway is We have attach one pc to primar asa's inside port and given ip to the user pc is from pc we are only able to inside ip of the primay asa nothing else.

Admin context:
Inside: standby
outside: /27 standby
DMZ: /24 standby
Default gateway of outside:

Context-a IP:
Inside: standby
outside: /27 standby
DMZ: /24 standby
Default gateway of outside:

Total all context from primary asa was replicated to the secondary asa. But we are not able to get internet access from inside zone.
We are trying to trouble shot from asdm's packet tracer where souce ip was inside ip from context-a and destination ip and result output showing packet was blocked by Access-List.
Please give us a solution.

Ping is stateless to the firewall, and as such the replies aren't allowed back in by default.  Try to enable icmp inspection and see if you can ping then:

policy-map global_policy
 class inspection_default
   inspect icmp
