    Sometimes you send e-mails, and sometimes you
    write by post for the sake of the stamps. In his most
    recent letter, he says that his sister is back-packing

    show her the best of Turkey, but since he did not
    mention a date, you immediately e-mail him and say:

    A) Why didn't you tell me when she was arriving so we
       could have met her at the airport?
    B) If you know your sister's plans, please tell me so that I
       can put her up and show her around.
    C) Are you sure that back-packing is a safe way for a girl
       to travel?
    D) I'm so sorry we missed your sister. Next time you
       should give us more warning.
    E) It’s nice to hear that your sister is coming, but what I
       really liked about your letter was the nice stamp.
