User: When using an ellipsis to indicate an omission from a quotation, (Points : 2) do not include spaces between the periods. use four dots or periods if a deletion occurs at the end of the sentence being quoted, three to signal the deletion, and one to end the sentence. if you include a parenthetical citation, use only three dots or periods and omit the final period normally positioned after the parenthetical reference. if the quotation is taken from a poem and the ellipsis points are used to indicate the omission of an entire line of verse, use exactly four dots or periods instead of the usual three.
