Instructions: There are two parts to this assignment. You must complete both parts. Both parts have equal value in terms of your final mark. Both contain an either/or choice. In other words, you complete Part 1 (a OR b, it’s up to you) AND Part 2 (a OR b, it’s up to you).
Part 1 (you must complete this part)

(Students of the Records Management specialisation are recommended to complete this option.)
