Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Should I use a title page?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Using a title page is not necessary because it adds unnecessary length to the document and can be seen as outdated in modern writing styles. Title pages were traditionally used in academic papers and reports, but many style guides now recommend omitting them. Instead, it is more common to include a title at the beginning of the document, followed by the main content. This allows for a more streamlined and concise presentation of the information.

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 inch
    Explanation
    The proper margins refer to the standard measurements used for setting the distance between the edge of a document and its content. The most commonly used margin size is 1 inch.

    • D.

      Page number

    Correct Answer
    B. Your last name and page number
    Explanation
    In academic writing, it is important to include your last name and page number in the top right corner of your paper. This helps to identify your work and maintain proper organization. Including the book title and page number or the last name of the author would not be necessary unless specifically instructed. The page number alone would not provide enough information to identify the author or the specific work. Therefore, the most appropriate choice is to include your last name and page number.

    A. Double spaced
    Explanation
    The proper spacing for a research paper is double spaced. This means that there should be a full blank line between each line of text in the paper. Double spacing allows for easier readability and makes it easier for readers to make notes or comments on the paper. It also helps to create a more professional and polished appearance for the paper.

    Explanation
    The proper font is Times New Roman Size 12 because it is specifically mentioned in the question. The other options, Lucinda Sans size 12 and Times New Roman Size 13, are not mentioned in the question and therefore cannot be considered the proper font. The option "Doesn't Matter" is also not the correct answer as the question is asking for a specific font.

  • 8. 

    When Should you indent?

    • A.

      The start of every new paragraph

    • B.

      Long quotes

    • C.

      Both

    Correct Answer
    C. Both
    Explanation
    Indentation is necessary at the start of every new paragraph to visually separate it from the previous one. This helps in organizing the content and making it easier to read. Additionally, long quotes should also be indented to distinguish them from the rest of the text and highlight their significance. Therefore, both situations require indentation for clarity and better presentation of the written material.
