    say you're writing a paper, and you're citing a source in MLA format. you end your paragraph with the citation, say it's (Jones 1). as long as you do not introduce another source into that same paragraph, you can end your paragraphs with only the page number. it would look something like this: studies have shown that orange cats prefer orange food (Jones 27). it has also been proven in the same study that black cats prefer licorice (38). etc etc etc

    it's between C or D. this question is worded poorly, to be honest.

    anyone can post anything to an answer website like that... i can post whatever i want too, but i've written enough papers in MLA to know how to cite them, so hopefully my answer is informed
