    Explanation
    The given statement is incorrect because it states that all direct quotations must go inside the quote marks. However, this is not true.

     "All direct quotations must go inside the quote marks." (Brennan 182)

    • A.

      Correct

    • B.

      Incorrect

    Correct Answer
    A. Correct
    Explanation
    The given statement is correct because it follows the standard rule of placing direct quotations inside the quote marks. This helps to clearly indicate that the words being used are directly quoted from another source. The inclusion of the citation (Brennan 182) at the end of the quotation also shows that the information is attributed to a specific author and page number, further supporting the accuracy and credibility of the statement.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Every research paper will have an outline.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Research papers typically follow a structured format, and an outline is an essential component of this format. An outline helps to organize the content of the paper, providing a clear structure and logical flow to the information presented. It helps the writer to plan and organize their thoughts, ensuring that all relevant points are included and that the paper is coherent and well-structured. Additionally, an outline serves as a guide for the reader, allowing them to easily navigate through the paper and understand its main points. Therefore, it can be concluded that every research paper will have an outline.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    An outline can only be written in full sentences.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An outline can be written in bullet points or phrases, not necessarily in full sentences. Therefore, the statement "An outline can only be written in full sentences" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The first order of numbering in the outline starts with the Roman numbers (I, II, III, IV, V) first, then CAPITAL letters (A., B., C.), then Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the first order of numbering in the outline starts with Roman numbers (I, II, III, IV, V) first, then CAPITAL letters (A., B., C.), and finally Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3, ). This means that the outline follows a specific sequence of numbering formats, starting with Roman numerals, then moving to capital letters, and finally using Arabic numbers. Therefore, the statement "The first order of numbering in the outline starts with the Roman numbers first, then CAPITAL letters, then Arabic numbers" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
