a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 1
 
Replace 'too' with 'very'.

'Too' denotes 'more than required'. It is generally used with unpleasant adjectives. e.g. too ugly, too bad, too wicked etc.

The correct sentence should be: I am very glad to receive the offer letter of this company.

Don't say: I am too glad to meet you.
Say: I am very glad to meet you.

Note: Too happy, too healthy, too pleased etc should not be used with 'too' as you don’t really mean “more than required happy” or “healthy - more than required”.

Similarly, Let us see the use of 'Too....to'

'Too...to' can be used with pleasant adjectives

e.g. He is too intelligent to be cheated.
