Model Answer:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to request some information regarding the historical exhibition that is being organised at Namgoa near Hyderabad.

As part of the student social survey project, I am organising a small group of students to visit your exhibition. I need some information related to it. Firstly, could you please let me know what kind of historical items are being exhibited. I noticed that most of the items are handmade and certain items are made by disabled children. Please give me an overview of the articles being exhibited.

Secondly, please let me know the opening and closing dates of the exhibition. Finally, as many members of our group come from low socio economic backgrounds, they are unable to afford the full price of the ticket. Please let me know if there are any discounts available for school students. Moreover, it would be great if you could let me know the hours of operation.

I will be waiting for your reply.

Yours faithfully,
