  • 13. You’re researching AlexanderGraham Bell, credited asinventor of the telephone. Bychance, you find a book aboutBells life in your attic.

Can you cite thebook as a primary source in yourresearch about telephone use?

Onscreen,two actors perform a scene portrayinga man making a phone call in the 1920sand an operator taking the call.
