In this letter, the author has addressed each instruction by answering each in separate paragraphs. Also, all these ideas are well connected logically and with linking devices. As a result, the letter seems straightforward.

At the same time, the writer can use apt words in the situation that maintain the formal tone. Additionally, the variety of sentences make it tempting for the reader to assign 7.5 or 8 bands for the letter.

Each body paragraph very briefly addresses the task given by each instruction separately. Also, the author maintains the formal tone of the letter in the introduction and end paragraph. As a result, the IELTS examiners job to judge the work of this student is easy.

Moreover, the author ensures that all body paragraphs are connected logically without ambiguity. Also, they use sufficient linking devices. 

Lastly, there are hardly any grammatical errors, but the sentence structures are a bit too simple. The IELTS examiner would love to see a bit more variety of sentences.
