When citing sources, it is necessary to include a citation for material which is--- a) Not your own b) Your own, but from a previous work c) Paraphrased (in your own words) d) All of the above
D) is correct! Avoiding plagiarism is extremely important, as is giving credit where it is due. It is also important that your reader have access to the evidence you used to support your thesis; two sets of eyes are better than one!

Which of the following makes the strongest thesis for an argumentative essay? Why? a) Dogs are cute. b) Dogs are canines. c) Dogs are superior pets to cats.
C) is the correct answer. The first two, while true (and yes, 'a' is technically an opinion) are not arguments. A thesis needs to be a point which can later be supported by evidence, even if the point is an opinion.
