task response
Your letter effectively addresses the task by apologizing for missing the meeting, explaining the reason for your absence, and stating what you will do to compensate. However, the tone of your writing could be more formal and professional to suit the context of addressing your boss. Consider using formal language and expressions throughout the letter.
coherence cohesion
The logical structure of the letter is clear, with an introduction, explanation, and conclusion. However, there is room for improvement in the coherence and cohesion of ideas. Ensure that each paragraph focuses on a single idea and transitions smoothly to the next. Additionally, the closing could be more impactful to leave a lasting impression on your boss.

‘Complex’ sentences are not actually very complex; they are just two or more simple sentences put together. Putting them together makes the essay more coherent and cohesive.
