    Neither.

    The office will remain closed on Monday.

    Please give your threads more helpful titles. 'Grammar' gives us no idea what the thread will be about. Office will remain close/closed? would have been appropriate.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    2. Office will remain closed on Monday.

    Thanks.
    5jj has given you the correct version of the sentence. Please look at the amendments I have made to your post, and remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns (Monday, English, India, November etc).

    "Dear Sir" is fine if you are writing a formal letter to a man. It is not appropriate in this forum.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
