    C. Fair Use
    Explanation
    Fair Use is not a form of plagiarism because it is a legal concept that allows limited use of copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. It is a defense against copyright infringement and is based on the principle of promoting freedom of expression and the advancement of knowledge. Fair Use allows for the use of copyrighted material for purposes such as criticism, commentary, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research, as long as the use is considered fair and does not harm the market value of the original work.

      D. Both A & C

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Both A & C
    Explanation
    In this question, the correct answer is d. Both A & C. This means that both situation A (including a generally known fact without providing a reference) and situation C (adding quotation marks and providing a citation when using words from another author's work) would not result in plagiarism. Plagiarism refers to the act of using someone else's work or ideas without giving them proper credit. In situation A, since the fact is generally known, it does not require a reference. In situation C, by using quotation marks and providing a citation, the author is acknowledging the source and giving credit, which avoids plagiarism.

Citing the source is important to give credit to the original author or researcher and to avoid plagiarism.
