Sic denotes a misspelling, grammatical, substantive, or other type of error in the original version of what is being quoted, and is typically written in brackets with italics.

Here is example usage in quoting a statement[1] of Barack Obama in 2008:

It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 [sic] states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it.
