While filling recommendations, my recommender encountered a difficult situation to which even I don't have the solution. Would appreciate your comments:

In the recommendation there are two questions in following order

1) Discuss the applicant’s strengths

2) Describe the applicant’s leadership and teamwork skills

The situation is,
In the first question recommender is listing and describing Leadership and Teamwork as my strenghts. If he does that it will be a repeatition in (2). Will that be ok,
OR
He can list and describe some other strengths in (1) and describe leadership and teamwork in (2)
OR
He will describe leadership and teamwork only in (2)

In 1, he can write, "I believe that Applicant's greatest strength are leadership and teamwork, but since I cover that in my respons eto #2, I would like to focus on blah-blah, another strength of his, in this question."

Good luck!
