Your neighbour Fred Speelburg, residing at Park Society in London's Springfield Meadows area is facing difficulty in writing a letter to the municipal commissioner of the Municipal Corporation of your city. Help him complete this letter.

33 Springfield Meadows

Date: 17 June 2022

The Commissioner,
Municipal Corporation of Downing Street,

Sub:- Miserable Condition of roads

Respected Sir,
I would like to bring to your kind notice the miserable condition of roads in my locality, Springfield meadows area, Downing Street, London. The roads are broken at many places. As a result, vehicles cannot move smoothly.
The buses, trucks, cars, three-wheelers, have to halt after every five to six seconds just to adjust with the road breaks and pits. It has been repeatedly brought to the notice of the commission, but all in vain.
There is always a traffic problem on the roads. The first showers of monsoon will put the things in its worst shape. The residents are in deep distress on this account and they have repeatedly expressed their resentment through the press as well as through written complaints but nothing has so far been done.
People had also staged demonstration last month and the authorities assured them of necessary action in the matter, but so far, all the assurances have remained mere assurances. I request you to get the roads repair and constructed without any further delay lest the anger of the public should explode.

She was asked to wait in the lobby by the receptionist.

Roly-Poly Pill Bugs
Some people are afraid of bugs such as spiders or beetles. But there is one bug that just about everybody likes—pill bugs. If you ever pick one up, you know why its nickname is “roly-poly.” A pill bug rolls up into a tight little ball to protect itself. This bug is scared of you, not the other way around!
These little gray or brown bugs can be found almost everywhere in the United States except the desert. That is because they need to stay moist. But they can live in dry places like California thanks to lawn sprinklers. One of their favourite hang-outs is under damp flower pots.
Did you know that pill bugs have something in common with kangaroos? After her eggs hatch, the mother pill bug carries her young in a pouch under her belly. The little pill bugs stay there until they are big enough to be on their own.
Pill bugs also have something in common with snakes. Just as snakes shed their skin when it gets too small, pill bugs do too. This is called “molting.” A pill bug molts about five times until it is full-grown.
Pill bugs are a little like owls, too. Pill bugs are nocturnal, meaning they are most active at night. That is when they most like to wander around and look for food. And just like earthworms, pill bugs help break down plants in the soil. Pill bugs aren’t just nice bugs. They are also interesting ones!

You will be least likely to find a pill bug ________________________.
