Let's just look at the 10.3.3 actually says. Numbered or lettered directions are in 1-5. IF additional paragraphs are present, they are in 7-5. If additional paragraphs are NOT present, nothing happens! The numbered directions remain in 1-5 because their exercises items are the subentries in 3-5. The additional paragraphs in directions has nothing to do with it.
If you have a specific situation that is causing confusion on this point, please send the actual print page and we can look at this again.
