    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when an abbreviation or acronym appears more than once in a document, it is recommended to spell it out at its first mention. This helps ensure clarity and understanding for readers who may not be familiar with the abbreviation or acronym. After spelling it out, the abbreviation or acronym can be enclosed in parentheses and used in succeeding paragraphs. This practice helps to maintain consistency and avoid confusion in written materials.
