Respected Sir, [Is this a normal method of greeting in your culture?

But whom should I address this application to then? [If this post is advertised in the press, it will have an indication of who should be addressed. Usually it will be the Personnel Department or Human Resources Department - in whch case you need to start with the neutral "Dear Sir or Madam"]


I came to know through the reliable recourses Can't I use resources here instead of recourses? [what do you mean by this? Advertisements? The grapevine?] I just mean any source of information. [Too general and unlikely>> "I notice from your adevertisement in [name of newspaper/website] that you have some vacancies

Yours truly,faithfully Should there be a comma between Yours and faithfully? [absolutely not]

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Address:

C/O. Mr. John Doe

Malgudi, Street #17, Malgudi Road, Chandrapore



Perhaps, by using C/O author of the application letter is trying to say that he is living with someone else like his grandfather and correspondence should be made to his grandpa's address.
Absolutely correct - but if "(late)" is inserted after the name, the interpretation is that the person in the address is dead. Someone who is dead does not [generally] receive correspondence.
Your original posting had this:

C/O Mr. John Doe (Late)

C/O Mr. John Doe (Late)
Hi Feebs,

Okay, now I get it. Should I use a period after C/O or brackets around it?

C/O. Mr. John or [C/O] Mr. John
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
neither - it is written "c/o xxxxxxxx" [nb - no capital letters]
Feebs11neither - it is written "c/o xxxxxxxx" [nb - no capital letters]
Hi Feebs,

There are many other expressions of the kind c/o like:

D/O - daughter of

S/O - father of

D.O.B. - date of birth

Should these expressions also be written in small letters, but generally these expressions occur in the beginning of proceeding text?
