Which option presents citation information in the most credible way?

Which option presents citation information in the most credible way?

The first one (A) but next time remember to add the choices when u ask the question.

The answer is A: According to Elana Martin, company spokesperson, “the error has not been traced to its ultimate source.” When citing the words of others, and in trying to avoid plagiarism, it is very important to give the reader all the necessary tools to find the source again and corroborate it. An element of a citation that should never be omitted is the name of the author of the words or ideas that are being cited. Another piece of information that is very helpful is to include the title or role of the author being cited in order to show the relevance of the quote.

The citation information in the most credible way is: According to an unknown author, the data are “flawed significantly” (90). Because this statement presents the quotation marks which means that was excerpted from another author and the page where this citation was taken.

The most credible way to cite the information is, “Anderson argues that the characters represent “the essential American couple” (24). This is the most credible because it states the name of the author and is written in a way that is grammatically correct and without adding extra information. The other sentences are not the best for the following reasons: A new book argues that the characters are “the essential American couple” (24). It does not state the author, which makes the citation less credible. Anderson’s new book claims these characters are “the essential American couple,” and others agree.” This sentence starts off okay, but the ending “and others agree” cannot be proven which makes it less credible. “The essential American couple is prototyped in these characters,” writes Anderson in his recent book.” This sentence is not properly cited as it does not have a page number, but it is also written in a way that makes it harder to understand for the reader.

Answer 6

This is the most credible way to present the information because it gives the author’s name but doesn’t add extra, unnecessary information or wording. It is clear, concise, and gives the right amount of information about the book and the quote.

Answer 7

I would say According to the book Counting the Beans, the data are unsound. Because you give the name of the book and the page where such information can be found.

A new book argues that the characters are “the essential American couple” (24). Anderson argues that the characters represent “the essential American couple” (24). Anderson’s new book claims these characters are “the essential American couple,” and others agree. “The essential American couple is prototyped in these characters,” writes Anderson in his recent book.
