Instructions For each item below, determine if the sentence could work correctly for only an MLA paper, only an APA paper, both MLA and APA, or neither. Please assume that Wayne W. Dyer, PhD, authored a text in 1976 that included this provocative statement: “Your guilt is an attempt to change history.” This statement is printed on page 101. Also, please assume that each statement below has been double-spaced and that your paper is doing a historical review of the concept of guilt in the twentieth century.
