## Is it possible to eliminate "Question" and change what letters appear inside the boxes?

Having much success on day 1. Thank you for making this so easy.

Running version 1.1.1257 (svn:1260)

I'm trying to make a separate answer sheet in this format (will have a total of sixty questions in six columns):

1 ABCDE   11 ABCDE     21 ABCDE 2 FGHJK   12 FGHJK     22 FGHJK 3 ABCDE   13 ABCDE     23 ABCDE 4 FGHJK   14 FGHJK     24 FGHJK 5 ABCDE   15 ABCDE     25 ABCDE 6 FGHJK   16 FGHJK     26 FGHJK 7 ABCDE   17 ABCDE     27 ABCDE 8 FGHJK   18 FGHJK     28 FGHJK 9 ABCDE   19 ABCDE     29 ABCDE10 FGHJK   20 FGHJK     30 FGHJK

(misalignment of first line unintended)

Thanks to forum posts, changing the boxes to ovals and getting more than one column was quite simple.

Is it possible to:

Prevent the word "Question" from appearing before every question?

Change the letters inside the ovals from ABCDE to FGHJK on even numbered questions?

Reduce the size of the letters inside the ovals?

Prevent the word "Question" from appearing before every question?

In the subject, you can redefine the command \AMCbeginQuestion, which is originally

\def\AMCbeginQuestion#1#2{\par\noindent{\bf Question #1} #2\hspace*{1em}}

with something like

\def\AMCbeginQuestion#1#2{\par\noindent #2\hspace*{1em}}

In the separate answer sheet, you can redefine the command \AMCformQuestion, which is originally

\def\AMCformQuestion#1{\vspace{\AMCformVSpace}\par{\bf Question #1:}}

to something like

\def\AMCformQuestion#1{\vspace{\AMCformVSpace}\par{\bf #1:}}

Change the letters inside the ovals from ABCDE to FGHJK on even numbered questions?

\correctchoice{yes} can be written \correctchoice[Y]{yes} to use letter Y inside the boxes. Make your letters in an automated way should be possible, but a little tricky.

Reduce the size of the letters inside the ovals?

Again, you can use something like

\correctchoice[{\small Y}]{yes}

or even

\correctchoice[{\scriptsize Y}]{yes}

Thank you very much. It all worked!

Could you tell me please if there is any way to choose a sans serif font for the tiny type and/or to make it bold?

Still can't believe how easy it has been to get started. Thank you again.

Sans serif : \textsf{...}. Bold: \textbf{...}, as in

\correctchoice[{\small\textbf{\textsf{Y}}}]{yes}

You can also define a LaTeX command to make it more flexible:

\def\keyletter#1{{\small\textbf{\textsf{#1}}}}

(right after \begin{document}), so that you can use

\correctchoice[\keyletter{Y}]{yes}

Worked perfectly. Thank you!

you can make it easy by used \small in one time like this.

\begin{multicols}{2}\small
.......
\end{multicols}

The following type size commands, in order of increasing font size, are supported by LaTeX.

\tiny    \scriptsize    \footnotesize    \small    \normalsize (default)    \large    \Large (capital "L")    \LARGE (all caps)    \huge    \Huge (capital "H")
