How to Recognize Plagiarism

Practice: 10 of 10

Please read the original source material carefully and then select the entry, either (A) or (B), that you think has not been plagiarized.

Original Source Material: While computers are very good at certain tasks, such as diagnosing equipment malfunctions or performing mathematical functions, they are morons at doing things your dog or cat can do, such as recognizing you and acknowledging your presence. Computers lack qualitative intelligence, that is, the ability to identify those features that make each of us unique and different.
