Not true (the "^^^^^^^^^" markers require monospaced font):

% cp --help
Usage: cp [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
or: cp [OPTION]... SOURCE... DIRECTORY
or: cp [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
Copy SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
-a, --archive same as -dpR
...
-p same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps
^^^^^^^^^
--preserve[=ATTR_LIST] preserve the specified attributes (default:
mode,ownership,timestamps), if possible
^^^^^^^^^
additional attributes: context, links,
xattrs, all
--no-preserve=ATTR_LIST don't preserve the specified attributes
...
