Hello zabiullah

I'm afraid we don't correct our users' emails. Sorry! We are simply too small a team with too much other work to be able to do this. If you have a question about a specific phrase, then please feel free to ask us.

All the best

In reply to by uncle choi

Hello Uncle choi 'C.C.' is an acronym for 'carbon copy'. This refers to carbon tissue, a 19th and 20th century technology used to make copies of documents. If you're interested, you can see more in the Wikipedia article (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_tissue). All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
