      In the top right header

    Correct Answer
    D. In the top right header
    Explanation
    In an essay, page numbers typically appear in the top right header. This placement allows for easy reference and organization of the essay's pages. It is a common practice to include page numbers in the header section as it helps readers locate specific pages quickly.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Academic title pages usually do not display a page number.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Academic title pages typically do not include page numbers because they are considered separate from the main body of the document. The title page is usually the first page of a document and is used to provide important information such as the title, author's name, institution, and date. Since it is not part of the actual content, it is not necessary to include a page number on the title page.

    Choose the correct formatting for a level 1 section heading:

    • A.

      Flush left, boldface, lowercase text

    • B.

      Centered, boldface, uppercase, and lowercase text

    • C.

      Centered, uppercase, and lowercase text

    • D.

      Flush left, uppercase, and lowercase text

    Correct Answer
    B. Centered, boldface, uppercase, and lowercase text
    Explanation
    The correct formatting for a level 1 section heading is centered, boldface, uppercase, and lowercase text. This format helps to distinguish the section heading from the rest of the content and makes it visually prominent. Centering the text gives it a balanced appearance, while using boldface emphasizes its importance. Writing the heading in both uppercase and lowercase letters helps to improve readability and make it easier to scan through the document.

This format includes the author's last name (Johnson), the year of publication (2013), and the page number (p. 4) where the quotation can be found. This format follows the guidelines of most citation styles, such as APA or MLA, which require the inclusion of the author's name, publication year, and page number for direct quotations.

It serves as a unique identifier for digital content such as articles, books, and other scholarly materials.
