In order to make legitimate paraphrase you have to: (please choose the variant where all statements are correct)?

   a. Reformulate the main ideas in your own words, remove or replace unusual words, retain unique terms but highlight them as quotes;

    b. Adopt the same sentence structure as the source writer, use a suitable reporting verb and provided an in-text reference detail, express the main idea concisely;

    c. reformulate the main ideas in your own words, copy useful pieces of the original text, use a suitable reporting verb and provided an in-text reference detail;

    None of them are ideal, but I think C meets most of the requirements. Much depends upon the context, and also the literacy of the intended target audience.  Including a concise source reference in a technical paraphrase can be very useful to the reader.

    None of the above. (A) would be okay, but not “remove or replace unusual words“.
