"In Tikopia, when the paramount chief dies, there is an election among the lesser chiefs to replace him" (Nowak & Laird, 2010, p. 177).

Suppose you write the following in your post or paper: When a Tikopian chief who rules over other chiefs dies, the chiefs beneath him hold an election to decide who will be his successor. This is information you learned from a book. Do you still need to include a citation even though it is not a direct quotation? (Points : 1)
Yes, you should always cite the source from which you learned your information. You should include a citation, like so: (Nowak & Laird, 2010).
No, you don't need to include a citation.
