The answer to this is letter C. It can be confusing to cite different passages and resources, but this is required, especially when you are making research papers or your thesis. If you do not add the right citations correctly, you will probably be called out for it, or you may even be accused of plagiarizing certain portions of your paper.

This is something that you do not want to happen. Do remember that there are different ways that you can cite sources. Some professors would require the APA format while there are also others who would need the Harvard format. There are some slight differences that you should be aware of so that the citations will be correct.
