A memo, which is short for 'memorandum', is a note or short message, usually between people working in the same organization.

Memory is the ability to remember or what you remember. Some people write their memories (in the plural) or memoirs, which are a written account of what they can remember of their life.

Agree as to the meaning of 'memo', but the point is you usually fax papers to companies you cooperate with, rather than to your co-workers. In that case 'memo' is hardly justifiable. Maybe smth like 'note' would be more applicable?
Best regards.

Of the four options available, it is obvious that only 'memo' is correct. No change is necessary.
