Answers are taken from ICAI material, this was question was asked in Nov 17 exams old course. Personally i am not happy with answer, engagement letter in recurring audits is not mandatory and depends on circumstances. Earlier ratification order was required  to passed in each AGM confirming appointment of auditor for 5 AGMs, so every year auditor has to send certificate and consent, but that doesnt mean engagement letter, now requirement to pass ratification order every year is not required, so sending certificate and consent is also not required.
in short answer is not appropriate, it should be as per SA 210, it depends on circumstances.

Auditor should make agreement with client where management agrees to their responsibility, regarding financial statements.
Questions says it is not required, so it is incorrect
