Press Reply in the original thread, then in the reply box select and cut the entire contents and past that into the reply box in the other thread.
That is correct. But a more elegant way is this. To quote a post from one thread, click the "+Quote" button at the bottom of the post, go where you want to post, then in the reply box you will get a new button "Insert quotes...", click that and select what to insert (the material already copied will be available there) and then type your post and click "Post reply".

And you can do this even with multiple posts/quotes. Just click the "+Quote" button of every post you like to quote and then proceed a stated by @TNSMANI above. After clicking "Insert quotes..." you've first the ability to slide the desired quotes to the position you like i.e. which on on top, which as last.
After you inserted the "multiple" quotes in your reply draft, the system separates them by a blank line to easily allow you to directly reply to a specific quotation.
And when done, as TNSMANI said: "Post reply"
