    • C.

      A memo

    • D.

      A business letter

    Correct Answer
    C. A memo
    Explanation
    A colon is commonly used after headings in a memo to introduce the content that follows. It helps to separate the heading from the information that follows, providing a clear and organized structure to the memo. In contrast, a funny joke or a love note typically does not require headings, and a business letter may use different punctuation marks, such as a comma or a period, to introduce the content. Therefore, the presence of a colon after each heading suggests that the correct answer is a memo.
