Default Memo Formatting (EOM 2 & 3)

I just submitted EOM 3. Without going into detail, the model solution memo specifically lists the questions from Task 7 and answers them directly. I divided my memo into the requested sections (intro, data/assumptions, model, analysis, conclusion), but did not directly ask and answer the questions. My analysis obviously answers each question, I just didn't type out the questions in bold and answer them directly in the Q&A format. Does anyone think I'll be failed for this?

As for EOM 2, kind of the same deal. I separated my report into Executive Summary and Detailed Report, but I didn't provide a Conclusion section. I clearly gave a conclusion and clearly answered all of the questions in my memo, but I'm wondering if I'll be failed for not specifically typing Conclusion in bold.

You're fine for EOM3 - I didn't list the questions and MMRed.

The most important parts are executive summary and conclusion for my experience. I had different format than model solution on Module 2 and 3, but I clearly stated my major results and recommendations (on what to do for unresolved issues) in those two sections. I passed Module 2-4 on first attempt.
