I have been using LaTeX since 1987 or thereabouts and have been on the LaTeX3 team since before we released LaTeX2e. I'm currently somewhat inactive in the LaTeX project but show up in related fields, I'm an editor of the MathML spec for example.

I am employed by NAG ltd, but any opinions expressed here are personal.

classic way is to use tags-query-replace (with etags)

comment Generate only aux file for external files
in your case you do not need it at all as you are inputting the files, but the answer to the question as written is basically no, especially for \pagreref you really need to typeset the external file to know what numbers should be written to the aux file.

@Adelyn if you use the environment as above then meant \begin{enumerate}\raggedright

@user64984 code is fine (apart from the useless epsfig reference) you just need to do latex file instead of pdflatex file on the command line you just type that, I have no idea how to customise which commands latexshop runs, sorry, I have never seen that editor.

@Adelyn stick \raggedright after \begin{enumerate} (or I suspect enumitem has a key for that in its [...] argument if you go the enumitem way).

The class does \RequirePackage[dvips]{graphics,graphicx} so it forces latex/dvips usage and makes graphics incompatible with pdflatex

@Adelyn no you get 1 on those lines (as the qquad is inside a box) and none on the others (as the space is discarded)

@cfr always believe the log file, not the description in the question:-)

@user64984 unless you need a compatibility with latex2.09 documents from the 1980's you should never load epsfig (honestly, I wrote that thing, you don't need it this century)

@cfr well it might if you have a new enough setup, but if the eps isn't appearing my guess is the conversion either isn't set up or the conversion failed, but the log would say....

I just updated my answer with line by line comments explaining why the code in the question doesn't work as you hoped (that's what I meant by stepping through here)

OK since you made same comment on Andrews answer I'll step though the original line by line in my answer.

comment Unseemly spaces at start of lines
It's hard to know where to start:-) \noindent has no effect after \\ only at the start of a paragraph, there is no alignment of the ) because the letters have different widths, only the first \qquad makes any space (the others make space at the start of a line where space is discarded. ...

Unrelated but you should not load epsfig. If you are using pdflatex you probably need to convert the eps to pdf. But latex should never silently do nothing there should be a warning in the log if it can not handle the image
