    • A.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. False
    Explanation
    Not all the information that exists in the world can be found on the Internet. While the Internet is a vast and extensive source of information, it does not encompass everything. There are certain types of information that may not be digitized or accessible online, such as classified government documents, confidential corporate data, or personal information that is not publicly available. Additionally, there are also instances where information may be intentionally withheld or restricted from online platforms. Therefore, it is incorrect to claim that all information in the world can be found on the Internet.

    TRUE or FALSE - The information that you find on the Internet is always true and correct.

    • A.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the information found on the internet is not always true and correct. The internet is an open platform where anyone can publish content, which means there is a wide range of information available, including inaccurate or misleading information. It is important to verify the credibility of sources and cross-reference information before accepting it as true.

  • 9.

    A. False
    Explanation
    Copying information directly from the Internet or a book and passing it off as your own is considered plagiarism, which is a serious academic offense. When you copy someone else's work without giving credit, you are not only dishonest but also depriving yourself of the opportunity to learn and develop your own understanding of the subject matter. It is important to properly cite your sources and use the information you find as a reference or starting point for your own ideas and analysis.

    Rate this question:

It involves taking someone else's ideas, words, or work without giving proper credit or citation. This is considered unethical and a form of academic dishonesty. Research, studying, and reading are all legitimate activities that involve gathering information, but they do not involve presenting someone else's work as one's own.
