the sentence arrangement and the vocabulary are
not excessively similar to the original.
How to paraphrase
1. Reread the original article till understanding
thats complete meaning.
2. Write the paraphrase on a note card.
3. At the top of the note, write some keywords to
point out the subject of the paraphrase.
