The North Mountain Views Rails to Trails package—combining two nights at the High Point Lodge, a half-day guided tour, one night at the Trail’s End Inn, and two tickets on the Scenic Shores Railroad—was listed incorrectly in the newsletter as $295. The actual price per person for this package is $529 plus tax and is based on double occupancy.
In addition, please note that Lake Zephyr Sports and Culture offer is valid only at the Hidden Cove Resort Hotel. Prices are for two adults, and the package includes breakfast and dinner for three days. Each additional adult with pay $222; for an additional child, the extra cost is $202.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear Ms. Bowman:
You recently received an informational packet concerning the upcoming Association of Financial Consultants conference. I need to clarify the charges for existing members. The cover letter that I enclosed with your conference booklet should have included the sentence, “If you are not AFC member, please submit $35 for your membership.”
As you have already paid this year’s membership dues, you do not need to send the $35 listed on the conference registration form. Please forgive the mistake. When you return your registration form, please write “already a current member” on it. However, you will still need to enclose the $50 conference fee and $275 for your room and banquet meal no later than February 10.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. The best way is to e-mail me at email@example.com, but if necessary, you may also leave me a message at 1-561-555-8286, extension 432, and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
3. What is the main purpose of the letter?
A. To ask for a payment
B. To explain an error
C. To discuss a conference
D. To answer a question
4. How much does it cost to belong to the AFC?
A. $10 B. $35 C. $50 D. $75
