Man is a social animal. Interaction and communication between men have become quite natural and indispensable. Writing of replies involves a certain standard of form and style in ‘formal replies’. Good taste, elegance and a refined style are the necessary ingredients for all replies, formal as well as informal. A formal reply is usually very short. It is brief and to the point. 

Business, Official or Public reply letters demand brevity and formal treatment. The quality of a good reply is that it must always be pleasant. Even an unpleasant reply should be presented in the most courteous form.

Students should keep in their mind the following salient features of a formal reply.

1. The length of the formal replies should not exceed 50 words as per CBSE guidelines.

Q. What are official responses?

A formal response is often quite succinct. It is succinct and direct. A good response must always be pleasant as a defining characteristic. One must be polite and respectful even while denying the invitation or citing an inability to attend. Formal responses necessitate a formal demeanour.

Q. How do I answer or respond?

When you SMS your pals requests such, “Please reply to the invitation by tomorrow,” “reply” is definitely a preferable option. Sounds a lot more organic.
