Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am an A-level student from R.V. College of Arts, Bangalore. As part of the student social survey project, we are planning to visit the historical exhibition that you are arranging in your town. I am writing to you to seek further details on the exhibition.

I understand this is a historical exhibition but could you please elucidate on its content, such as, is there any particular period in history that this exhibition focuses on? What is the highlights of the exhibition and how students can benefit from visiting it? Could you also apprise me of the exhibition dates and timings? Will it be closed on weekends?

As I mentioned, I am planning this tour for a group of student, so would it be possible for us to get any discount on group booking or perhaps for students? If so please notify me what percent of discount we can be eligible for.

I would be highly obliged if you could provide these details at your earliest so that I can start making the transport and accommodation arrangements.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Prashant Kaur


Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am administering a group of pupils to visit the historical exhibition in Shaftesbury, UK next month. This tour will be a part of our school activities to encourage the young students to participate in social surveys and grow interests in history. I would really appreciate if you could forward me some information regarding the exhibition.

First of all, when the exhibition will be held and what are the daily opening hours? Secondly, is the exhibition suitable for the fourth and fifth graders? Please notify me about the theme and exhibited objects on display. This would help me better explain to my students about the content during our trip. Finally, what are the other activities being held in connection with the exhibition?

I am planning to bring over twenty students to the exhibition. So I would like to inquire whether we are eligible for any discount on entrance tickets. If there is no general discount, could you please arrange one for students?

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Johnson

Possible Answer:
Dear Sir/ Madam,

As a member of social student survey project at a college, I am planning to visit your exhibition along with a group of students which will be held on the town. However, before finalising our visit I would request you to kindly furnish the following details.

Though I understand that this exhibition is based on history, but I would need little more clarity on the content. Is there any specific period which is being referred to in the exhibition? What are the operational hours? For how many days exhibition items will be exhibited? Lastly, please advice if there is any discount available for the students?

I would request you to respond at the earliest so that I can make arrangements for the transport and accommodation.

Thank you so much.

Yours Sincerely,
Pooja Gupta

Dear Mr Kelvin,

I am writing this letter to inform you that we have booked bulk tickets for a group of 100 students to visit your exhibition which usually holds on every Sunday.

We will make our remaining 80% payment once we reach there and would appreciate if you can provide some discount for a bulk ticket payment. I would also like to know which date we should visit your place for the exhibition and what would be the most suitable time? Please also share the correct address and GPS coordinates of the location so as to avoid the last moment hassle to reach your place.

I would also suggest you to do some arrangements in advance to tackle such a large group of students. You can dedicate some staff members for us. It would be better if you provide some good presentations to all of us on the exhibition.

Thanking you in advance and hoping for a memorable visit to the exposition

Sincerely
Abhi.
