# Wrapfigure in an enumerate environment. [duplicate]

I want to use wrapfigure in the enumerate environment. For example,

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{wrapfig}

\begin{document}
\normalsize
{\bf Multiple Choice: }
\begin{enumerate}
\item \begin{wrapfigure}{r}{4.5cm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{Exam1_Fig1.jpg}
\end{wrapfigure}
As shown in the figure. This rock is phaneritic and contains quartz, K-feldspar, and plagioclase in nearly equal amounts. What is it? \\
(A) rhyolite \\
(B) basalt \\
(C) diorite \\
(D) ash-flow tuff \\
(E) granite \\
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


However, the figure inserted is not wrapped by the text, but put in a strange position. How to fix the problem?

Thank you!

• You can't. The documentation is very clear on this. It will not work in or near a list environment. – cfr Mar 9 '15 at 2:39

You cannot use wrapfigure in or near a list environment. If you look at the console output when you compile, you will see the warnings about this.

If you want wrapping here, you could fake it. For example:

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
\normalsize
{\bfseries Multiple Choice: }% do not use \bf in LaTeX it is deprecated 20+ years ago
\begin{enumerate}
\item As shown in the figure. This rock is phaneritic and contains quartz, K-feldspar, and plagioclase in nearly equal amounts. What is it?

\begin{minipage}{.45\textwidth}
\begin{enumerate}[label=(\Alph*), itemsep=0pt]% never number things manually!
\item rhyolite
\item basa
\item diorite
\item ash-flow tuff
\item  granite
\end{enumerate}
\end{minipage}
\begin{minipage}{.45\textwidth}
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{Exam1_Fig1.jpg}
\end{minipage}
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


• Never manually number things. Instead, use a customised list. In the above, I use enumitem to create such a list.
• \bf ought not be used with LaTeX 2e documents. That is, it is deprecated 20+ years ago. Instead, use \bfseries (as above) or \textbf{}.
