    Hi Weiqun,

    1. Good phrases are:

    "I am writing with regard to your advertisement..."
    "I am writing in response to your advertisement..."
    "I am writing to apply for the position I saw advertised in..."

    I good site to see examples of such letter writing is

    www.aueb.gr/lessons/english/int_eng3/int_eng3_letters.html+%22i+am+writing+*+*+*+your+a dvertisement&hl=en]this one[/url]

    (that's the Google cache - the page doesn't seem to exist any more)


    2. D. "Isn't available at the moment" is perfect.

    Hope this helps!




    [Edit]I edited the URL to eliminate the horizintal scrolling. :D [/edit]
