User: The following information is considered common knowledge and does not require a citation:







Weegy: Common knowledge is information that is presumed to be shared by members of a specific ‘community’ — an institution, a city, a national region, the nation itself, Western vs Eastern civilization, a particular race, ethnic group, religion, [ academic discipline, professional association, or other such classification. If one is writing exclusively for members of that group, certain things may not need to be cited that would need to be cited for non-members of the group. The point in these examples is that ‘common knowledge’ is highly relative to the audience and subject of one's writing, as well as the level. The less formal the writing, the less citation and documentation is generally expected. It should be evident however no matter how ‘common’ certain knowledge may be, if an exact quotation or close paraphrasing of this knowledge is taken from a source then it must be cited to the original author and source in order to avoid plagiarism, regardless of whether the idea or fact(s) involved are ‘commonly known’ or not. ]
