    B. When paraphrasing, you rewrite a passage in your own words.

    Explanation:

    Paraphrasing means restating or rephrasing in one's own words, always being careful to give credit to the original source in order to avoid charges of plagiarism (that is, passing someone else's ideas as your own). As such, paraphrasing does not add new information nor does it synthesize or condenses information (like in a summary), it just re-elaborates the passage in different words that should aim at the same meaning as the original.
