1. Students frequently overuse direct quotation in taking notes, and as a result they overuse
quotations in the final [research] paper. Probably only about 10% of your final manuscript
should appear as directly quoted matter. Therefore, you should strive to limit the amount of
exact transcribing of source materials while taking notes.

Paraphrased Version:
2. Quoting is useful when you feel the authors exact words really support your argument. Or if
you feel their words make a point in a particularly striking or memorable way. But remember
that if you overuse quotations from a source, that authors words will lose their power.

Paraphrased Version:

III. Summarizing. Summarize the parable below. (10 points)

The government raises the price of tobacco every year. This is usually done to
discourage people from smoking. Yet smokers continue to be slaves of this habit and often
spend a substantial part of their earnings on cigarettes. Cigarette advertisements lure people
into smoking and most active smokers cause a great deal of harm to passive smokers as well.
Smokers force the members of their family to bear the ill effects of the smoke that they exhale.
Smoking can be stopped by a strong will power and every person has the capacity to give it up
once he sets his mind at doing so.
