I am stuck on the following problem and don't know how to solve it. Here is my problem :

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

 \begin{verbatim}'\hfill\end{verbatim} MKS' which puts the word 'MKS' at the far right of the page where as  \begin{verbatim}'\noindent \end{verbatim}MKS' which
 puts  'MKS ' at the far left  of  the page in the same line.

\end{document}

Produces :

But I,d like to produce :

The text within \begin{verbatim} and \end{verbatim} makes a new line and takes a whole line for this text only within in it. This looks ugly. I want to get it with the other text. How can I do this?

The inline (or short-hand) use of the verbatim environment is \verb<char><stuff><char> where you specify <char> as anything other than *. Choose a character that does not occur within <stuff>. In your instance, you would use:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\verb|'\hfill| MKS' which puts the word `MKS' at the far right of the page where as 
\verb|'\noindent| MKS' which puts `MKS' at the far left of the page in the same line.
\end{document}

The *-variant \verb* prints the spaces as well.
