New neighbours have recently moved into the house/flat next door to where you live. You have examinations soon, but your neighbours play music late at night which is affecting your studies and sleep.

- why it is causing you difficulties

Write at least 150 words.

Model Answer:

Dear Mr Bhatnagar,

I would like to welcome you to our neighbourhood and hope that you will enjoy your stay. I write to raise a concern, which I would like you to address. I am pursuing my masters in business management and my final exams are knocking at the door.  To prepare for the course, I need a quite place to study. Moreover, I require a sound sleep too. Due to the loud music which you play in the night, I  am neither able to concentrate on my studies nor I am able to have a proper sleep. I request you to please try and listen to music at a low volume, and if possible shut the window, especially after 10 p.m. My exams would be over by 18th of this month and I would appreciate if you can consider my request till that date.

Looking forward to your kind cooperation.

Abhishek Kumar
