Question about choiceshoriz

Added by S. McKay almost 6 years ago

Hi,
I am typesetting some true/false questions. I have it set so that the choices are listed in order (true is always first). However, I would like to list the choices right after the question number on the same line as the question. Is this possible?

I have tried putting the choices after the question, and they are centered on their own line. Is this normal for choiceshoriz? It doesn't look too good with only two choices.

I have tried putting the choices at the beginning, but they are still centered on their own line. What I would like is something like the following: (<box> represents a box for student answers)

1. <box> True <box> False This statement is true.

or,

1. This statement is true. <box> True <box> False

would work equally well.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for listening,

choiceshoriz is not flexible enough: you should use choicescustom. As an example (you can remove the \hfill if you want the answers right after the question):

\begin{question}{YesNo}
  This statement is true
  { \def\AMCbeginAnswer{\hfill}%
    \def\AMCendAnswer{}%
    \def\AMCanswer#1#2{#1 #2 }%
    \begin{choicescustom}[o]
      \correctchoice{Yes}
      \wrongchoice{No}
    \end{choicescustom}}
\end{question}

One caveat: When i have \def\AMCanswer as above I get an error: \AMCanswer doesn't match its definition. Everything else works fine.

This works for me. Maybe a different version? Can you send your source file?

If it works for you, then I'll bet I've got something in my style file that's messing it up. I have it working the way I want without redefinining \AMCanswer, but I'll delve into it if I get time (this week I have 3 exams I need to deal with ....)

Hi,
should the solution work also with amc 1.2.1?

Thanks,

Sorry, I found the solution and I can confirm that the core of the solution works well also in amc 1.2.1.
Sorry for the double posting
