Oscar: I have been accused of plagiarizing the work of Ethel Myers in my recent article. But that accusation is unwarranted. Although I admit I used passages from Myersâ€™s book without attribution, Myers gave me permission in private correspondence to do so.
Millie: Myers cannot give you permission to plagiarize. Plagiarism is wrong, not only because it violates authorâ€™s rights to their own words, but also because it misleads readers: it is fundamentally a type of lie. A lie is no less a lie if another person agrees to the deception.
6. Millie uses which one of the following argumentative strategies in contesting Oscarâ€™s position?
(A) analyzing plagiarism in a way that undermines Oscarâ€™s position
(B) invoking evidence to show that Oscar did quote Myersâ€™ work without attribution
(C) challenging Oscarâ€™s ability to quote Myersâ€™ work without attribution
(D) citing a theory of rights that prohibits plagiarism and suggesting that Oscar is committed to that theory
(E) showing that Oscarâ€™s admission demonstrates his lack of credibility
