    Correct Answer
    C. Wikipedia can be consulted but it should not be used as a source in a university assignment
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that Wikipedia can be consulted but it should not be used as a source in a university assignment. This is because while Wikipedia can provide general information and a starting point for research, it is not considered a reliable or authoritative source for academic work. It is better to use scholarly sources, such as books or peer-reviewed articles, for university assignments.
