Hi my dear
Where do you live now?
You have to express your interest for them.

Correct Answer A suggestion

(Based on my experience of emailing thousands of faculties for paid assistant positions.)

Here is what I normally do to draft an email:

1st paragraph: Tell your name, what are you doing currently, why you are emailing the person, followed by how this research would fit into your long term plans.

2nd paragraph: Mention briefly about your experiences and skills, and how these would benefit the mentor's research projects (if applicable.)

3rd paragraph: Tell them you have attached your CV with the email and that you would be happy to hear from them.

Also try to make a decent-looking professional signature at the end of your email if you can.

The key here is to convey the message in most minimum words possible!

Good luck!
