Sir, our group no. is 75. Our group member XXXXXXX has left the college. Therefore need a group member. So ,please do a needful.

Of course, sir, right away! Naturally I could have shot back in the same tone. However let’s change strategy by sending a totally unrelated reply:

Ok, so far so good. I thought that the student understood, why I sent that reply. But no, he was not able to get it:

Sir, as I told you before that one of our group member XXXXXXXX has left the college and we are only three members in our group but now the problem is that our group member YYYYYYYY has also left the college and as result we are only tow members left in the group. So please do the needful

    Didn’t the semester end in December first week. How is the IED course going till Jan of next year?
    Now I am beginning to think that your stories are false Alex.

    IED started in October 2016 with a presentation in DC (as far as I remember). At that time the students were told that they have to form groups and submit an idea by the end of the year (Dec 2016). That is necessary, because finding ideas is a process which cannot be timed and while IED is actually in the syllabus, the students already have an idea and can start planning it out immediately. See? Nothing is false here.
