    The correct statement is B. Using different types of sentences and varying between paraphrasing and direct quoting will keep a reader interested.

    I would say that the answer is b because the rest of the answers are taking normal things a little too far, such as you should never heavily quote just to avoid plagiarism, but you should use quotes.
