Answer:

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!

Answer:

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.
