Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow

24 Broad Street,

Lagos Island,

Lagos State,

8th January 2017

The Headteacher,

Asebolu Group of Schools

38, Bode Thomas Street,



Dear Sir,


A Letter of Complaints

I wish to draw your attention to some problems that we pupils of this great institution now face. In the first place, the noise that comes from the Ajibola block industry located at the back of the school is an unpleasant and disturbing. Hearing the noise when teaching is going on is enough to distract us.


We find it difficult to concentrate on our lessons when teaching is going on. One of our teachers made us to understand that the owner of the industry did not get the government’s approval to locate the industry there.


Dear Sir you need to do something urgently about this as a stitch in time saves time.


Thank you.


Yours faithfully,


Davies Agboola
