The answers should be in the form of a short report, therefore they should include an introduction and conclusion but an executive summary is not required. Any charts or graphs should be in the body of the report and not in appendices.
The answers should be fully referenced (referencing may be either Harvard or “footnotes” in Word). You may include a Bibliography.
Both questions 1&2 require you to do your own research.
