    Default Are any specific requirements on capitalizing While addressing letters?

    Hi everyone,

    Could I trouble you explain the following 3 questions?

    1.Must all the letters on the envelope be capitalized ? Are any specific requirements on capitalizing While addressing letters?

    2.Miss Beard didnít manage to solve the problem _____ her manager had explained how.

    A.until B.unless

    As regards to questions ,if choose B,how can we revise the question body?

    3.Our teacher often refers to the clothes designed by you during our clothing designing class.

    Is there anything wrong or improper in question 3,esp in the underlined part?
