    D. It is difficult to praphrase material if you don not really understand it.


    The only true information here is option D, because it is essential for you to understand something, so that then you can paraphrase it. Paraphrasing is not just changing a few words, or word order, it means to be able to explain something more clearly, or placing the emphasis where you intend to.

    Option A: is FALSE because everytime that you use someonelse's ideas you need to acknowledge them.

    Option B: is FALSE because patchwriting is failed paraphrasing and it is considered an instance of plagiarism,

    Option C: is FALSE because every single quotation needs to be correctly acknowledged.
