    • D.

      About as long as the text

    Correct Answer
    D. About as long as the text
    Explanation
    A good summary should be about as long as the text because it aims to provide a concise and condensed version of the main points and ideas presented in the original text. If the summary is too long, it may include unnecessary details and lose its effectiveness in capturing the essence of the text. On the other hand, if it is too short, it may fail to adequately convey the key information. Therefore, a summary that is about as long as the text strikes a balance between being comprehensive and concise.
