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+advertisement&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!
