This is the situation : I am to mark a statement true or false with supporting statements from text. I like to put the extract in quotes to mean that it is the exact copy of the text. The problem is the original text begins with a quotation— say, with a direct speech. What's the solution?

Should it be like this? It is a binding rule that if a quotation contains a quotation within it the quote within quote is placed in single quotation.
