How can I put a graph next to the question?

Added by Paco Riviere over 1 year ago

How can I put a graph next to the question. It would allow me to save half the pages as I have space next to it. I have tried several options and it always comes out below. I mean something like this: https://sharelatex-wiki-cdn-671420.c.cdn77.org/learn-scripts/images/7/7b/InsertingImagesEx10.png

I imagine it should be something like this:

\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=0.48\textwidth]{birds}
\end{center}
\caption{Birds}
\end{wrapfigure}

Taken from: https://www.overleaf.com/learn/latex/wrapping_text_around_figures

Tried this way, on a working project:

\element{6.2.1 Central electrica}{
\begin{question}{c.hidro-wrapped}
\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{32mm}
\vspace{-2\baselineskip}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=30mm]{./Figures/chidroe.png}
\end{center}
\end{wrapfigure}
La figura mostra
\begin{choices}
\correctchoice{una central hidroelèctrica}
\wrongchoice{una central tèrmica}
\wrongchoice{una central nuclear}
\wrongchoice{una central geotèrmica}
\end{question}
\vspace{5\baselineskip}}

And got this message:

[1 <./Figures/partscnuclear.jpg>] [2]
! LaTeX Error: Environment wrapfigure undefined.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.

Any light would be very welcomed

I forgot the line:

\end{choices}

Anyway, I get the same result after adding the missing line:

[@1 <./Figures/partscnuclear.jpg>] [2]
! LaTeX Error: Environment wrapfigure undefined.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...

l.932 }

! LaTeX Error: \begin{minipage} on input line 932 ended by \end{wrapfigure}.

Unfortunately, next question writes down over this picture. Pic enclosed

Any idea?

Btw. Neither know why question text starts on next line. Compre with next question.

Try enclosing the choices and the figure into two parbox'es.

\begin{question}{test}
  \parbox[c]{.46\linewidth}{
     Question
     \begin{choices}
       ...
     \end{choices}
  }
  \parbox[c]{.46\linewidth}{
    ...figure...
  }
\end{question}

Hi,

I use graphics in questions on a regular basis, mixing questions, choices and figure inside minipages in different ways. For my convenience I wrote a small AMC file showing some of the different combinations I used, some look better and some look worse, but I found useful to keep it available. For questions of this kind you will need some fine tuning, but when done, result looks good. I use the keys=line option to avoid displayed keys mess with question layout in catalog mode, so I get a view closer to that for students.

I am attaching a groups.tex file with these questions and resulting DOC-catalog.pdf. Hope it is useful.
