check for an accidental :)

on minor keys they don't say to modulate but on major they tell you to

4 instructions = major (incorporates modulation) 3 instructions = minor (no modulation!)

For a minor melody, there will be accidentals in the given phrase and you usually will not be asked to modulate. In a major melody you will be asked to modulate.
