## Solutions with explanation text

Is there any possibility to generate explained solutions to the questions ? Currently the 'answers' options only marks the correct choices of the questions. What i would like is to add some text to explain the correct answer and why the other are wrong. Also in the case of open questions I would like the substitute or fill in the box with a text with a correct answer.

In the past I used the exam class for latex an there was some options to so this. I also used at some point the 'ifthen' and 'comment' packages for having environments which were produced depending on a boolean option. I'm a bit afraid to do this with AMC latex because i don't get the internals of the package and could boroke something.

Has anyone a solution for this ?

You can type in a question environment (only with the development version)

\explain{}


A simple example:

\begin{question}{explanation}
Which has the highest elevation among the following?
\begin{choices}
\correctchoice{Sagarmatha}
\wrongchoice{K2}
\wrongchoice{Mont Blanc}
\wrongchoice{Aconcagua}
\end{choices}
\explain{Sagarmatha which literally means Head of sky' is the native name of
Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world.}
\end{question}
