Activity 4b: Paraphrasing
Read the original text and the two paraphrases of it. Select the description that best describes the most appropriate paraphrase. After reading, select the answer you think is correct.
a) Both paraphrases are acceptable because some of the key words have been changed.
b) Paraphrase 1 is acceptable because it closely follows the sentence structure of the original.
c) Paraphrase 2 is acceptable because both the sentence structure and the keywords have been changed.
d) Paraphrase 2 is not acceptable because the sentence structure has been changed.
e) Paraphrase 1 is unacceptable because the subject is not at the beginning of the sentence as in the original, ie ‘When students’ rather than ‘Strategies’.
