    1) We are looking for a double room plus an extra bed for our ten-year-old child for ... nights from .. August to ...August.

    In particular, we would like to know your rates for half-board for these dates.


    2) Moreover, I would like to know if your hotel has a kids' club and an outdoor playground (with football pitch). You'd use "playground" in American English, and "pitch" in British English. Where are you planning to take this vacation?

    How far is it from the beach?

    3) OK

    4) It is necessary that you attend the meeting.
    It is necessary for you to attend..
    You must attend...
    These are all correct.

    5) It isn't necessary that she do the shopping. Since the verb "to do" needs to be in the subjunctive here, you need to use "do" not "does."
