Having (a gerund) so it is correct
Having received your letter.
Playing football is my hobby.

Kaushal Jha said: (Mar 19, 2012)  
Option D is correct the sentence does not have any grammetical error so does not need any rectification.

G.Vijayakumar said: (Mar 29, 2012)  
The answer is 'D' since there is no mistake in the sentence. It is a complete sentence.

Dibyendu Das said: (Apr 6, 2012)  
The word 'having' is related with consumption, specially food. So, option A is incorrect.

"for the same" is not necessary. Because, in the phrase " Having... ", we have the reason for thanking.

There's no any mistake in this sentence & Mr @Dibyendu Das "having" is not only used for consumption but also for other tasks.

Lekhasree said: (Jul 15, 2013)

Ayush said: (Sep 18, 2013)  
Starting an answer with an "ing" form, gerund forms are unacceptable, no?

Yashu said: (Sep 22, 2013)  
Logically while writing a letter we never say that we are writing you this letter so I think it will be "having received your letter this morning we are wishing to thank you for the same" if I am wrong please suggest me.

Bibhu said: (Sep 27, 2013)  
Having use here in subjective sense.

@Vertika, @Panky, and @Ruby, they all make sense.

Isn't that a correct sentence? If not, then why?

Anyone, answer please.

Shravani said: (Jan 7, 2014)

"having receiving" is a present tense and they are saying that "we are writing" this is also present tense then how can it possible? can anyone explain?

Kanakaraju said: (Feb 15, 2014)  
Better to use the H.verb like Upon/By supposing to get clear view.

Deepa said: (Feb 18, 2014)  
Having received your letter this morning, we were writing to thank you for the same.

Theerthupawar said: (Feb 20, 2014)  
Actually, The phrase description is not given. So,

"D" is the correct answer.

Exactly correct according to the grammar, this must be like:

Having received your letter this morning, we wrote to thank you for the same.

Having received your letter this morning, we wrote a thank you (letter) in reply.

Nobody said: (Apr 21, 2014)  
As we received your letter this morning, we are writing a thank you for the same.

Surbhi said: (May 4, 2014)  
A would be the correct answer.

Because having received your letter is absolutely incorrect.

As per grammatical rules, ing form (I.e having) is never used with the past tense (i.e received).

It may be after receiving/had received.

Shreya said: (May 9, 2014)  
The answer is right. No corrections. One needs to revise grammar rules thoroughly if this answer seems wrong.

Gurumurthy said: (Jun 18, 2014)  
Having received your letter this morning, we have been writing you to thank for the same.

Vilas said: (Jun 28, 2014)  
The word having is used to have some food. So it should be. I have received your letter this morning, we are writing to thank you for the same.

Vikram said: (Aug 3, 2014)  
I think 'have received your letter this morning. We are writing to thank you for the same'.

Anansha said: (Aug 6, 2014)  
Having received your letter this morning, we are thanking you for the same.

Swapnil Tanpure said: (Aug 15, 2014)  
Proper explanation,

Having + past participle = the perfect participle.
Have + past participle = the perfect tenses.

The perfect participle can be used as a modifier. It means an action recently completed relative to the main verb in the sentence. In constructions like these, the "subject" of the perfect participle is the same as the noun it modifies.

Having finished a hard day's work, Manual rested. (active voice) = Manual finished his work, and then he rested.

Monisha said: (Sep 30, 2014)  
Having received your letter is the correct answer because it should be,

I/we received your letter.

Vinaydeep said: (Oct 9, 2014)  
No grammar or spelling mistakes found.
And we can write this in another way also.

Having got your letter this morning, we are writing to thank you for the same.

Rakhi said: (Oct 16, 2014)  
A is incorrect it should be after receiving your letter.

Nanbol said: (Nov 5, 2014)  
Having received your letter this morning, I write to thank you for the same.

Khurram Firoze said: (Nov 18, 2014)  
I think the answer is correct however this sentence what I am writing may be correct.

On receiving your letter this morning, I am writing to thank you for the same.

Benson said: (Dec 17, 2014)  
I think the usage 'the same' is ambiguous. It is worth noting that 'the same' is used mainly among Indian English speakers. Native English hardly say 'the same'.

When the context is clear, the above sentence can be written as "Having received your letter this morning, we are writing to thank you for it";

However, I do not see it as an error as much as a usage issue. So D (No error) would be the correct option.

Akhil said: (Dec 26, 2014)  
Why not have received ?

Shiva said: (Jan 19, 2015)  
Instead of using having after may be used.

Nikhil said: (Jan 27, 2015)  
This morning we are instead of this we were is come.

Paul said: (Feb 18, 2015)  
The option is B - we write and not are writing.

Hariank said: (Mar 3, 2015)  
I think its "C" because, Having received your letter this morning, we are writing "Thank you for the same".

Vishnu said: (Mar 4, 2015)  
I think A is correct because having is said to present tense. Received is said to past tense. Is it correct or not I don't no please any tell me.

Vimala said: (Jun 15, 2015)  
I think being received is correct instead having received.

Shubham said: (Jun 18, 2015)  
What is the use of Having? Can you explain me please?

Hemapriya said: (Jun 26, 2015)  
What's the need for "Having"?

Muthamizh said: (Jul 21, 2015)  
Option A is incorrect because having and receiving same meaning.

Barnaba said: (Jul 23, 2015)  
"Having received your letter this morning we were writing reply for the same". This would have been a correct sentence.

Munikumar said: (Jul 26, 2015)  
We can also write as "have you received letter this morning" I think.

Vivek said: (Aug 5, 2015)  
I think it should be I am writing this letter.

When a group writes a letter a single person writes it and mentions on behalf of others.

Yogesh Jangde said: (Aug 9, 2015)  
Why having? Can we write just-"have received"?

Shambhavi said: (Aug 12, 2015)

"Have You" not Having.

I should their is have.

Pankaj Kewlani said: (Nov 6, 2015)  
D is correct. There is no error.

Vasavisudha said: (Dec 30, 2015)  
I think 'A' is correct. Because "HAVE YOU" not having.

Vani said: (Jan 24, 2016)  
I think A is wrong. Because present continuous comes with present tense. I think after receiving your letter.

Pooja said: (Feb 5, 2016)  
Yes @Vani.

After receiving your letter this is the write sentence or else we can say like that based on your letter which I have received now and then continue.

Bhabani said: (Feb 11, 2016)  
I think "having received your letter this morning", we wrote to thank you for the same. A sentence starting with having cannot have two ing words after that.

Bhanu said: (Feb 11, 2016)  
I didn't understand the answer! instead of 'D' answer should be 'A'.

Yes, Answer D is correct.

Snekha said: (Jul 16, 2016)  
I think, it should be "Receiving your".

Rakesh Phad said: (Jul 26, 2016)  
How it can be possible "Receiving your", When he had received the letter?

Sourav Ghosh said: (Jul 30, 2016)  
'A' IS INCORRECT.

I think it would be " After receiving your letter.

Nanu said: (Aug 18, 2016)  
I am not getting the correct way, can anyone explain how answer is 'D'?

Pavi said: (Aug 18, 2016)

Hi, friends.

Can anyone explain, why D is correct?

It should be "we are writing a thank you for the same".

Jinal said: (Sep 12, 2016)  
It should be like "I have received the letter".

Nemi said: (Dec 19, 2016)  
Why can't we write had in place of having?

Manideep said: (Dec 24, 2016)  
Had received your letter this morning.

Because already letter is received.

Meghana said: (Dec 27, 2016)  
Had received your letter because it's already received.

So, Option A is correct.

V.B.Vignesh said: (Feb 9, 2017)  
"Had received your letter this morning we are writing thank you for the same " this might be a answer for above question in my point of view.

Varinder Joshi said: (Apr 9, 2017)

Risshi said: (Oct 23, 2017)  
What about " On receiving your letter"? That is absolutely correct.

Rahul said: (Nov 10, 2017)  
It Should Be " Had Been ".

Abhinandan Dey said: (Nov 16, 2017)  
'Having' indicates past and when main clause is in past the subordinate clause can not be in present. (according to Cliff's TOEFL page-204).

How 'No error' can be an option.

Harsha said: (Dec 8, 2017)

It may be written as,

We have received your letter this morning/we received your letter this morning/ received your letter/ as Ireceived your letter.

Ishtiyaq said: (Feb 6, 2018)  
I think it should be have received.
