5. Your answer is wrong. If you check the manual (link at the top of the page), you will find that COND on the first step of a job always evaluates as false so you can never bypass the first step using COND. This has been mentioned in this forum a number of times, too, so a search would have found that as well. The only way to not execute the first step is to remove it from the job.

OR to add a RESTART=xxxxxxxx ( where xxxxxxxx is the stepname of the second step of the job ) parameter to the JOB statement.
