# Particular exam question

I would like to make similar document http://www.mojamatura.net/via-razina/dosadanji-ispiti-mat-a/201-matematika-a/1257-12-13-jesen-matematika-a

Document starts on later page. What have I done so far but still doesn't look that good. Enumerate puts items a way close to tcolorbox edge. Is there a way to connect tcolorboxes so that it would look similar?

It is a bit unclear to me as to what you want to accomplish. The questions in your linked document look quite different from the ones that your code gives.

Also I don't really get what you try to accomplish with the \qed in your environment zad. So that's why I'll show you 2 solutions. Both solution define a new command \myquestion with 3 arguments: a question title, the question itself and a semicolon separated list of multiple choice answers.

First solution: In this solution I tried to get as close as possible to the layout suggested by your own code (zad command, \qed in the title, multiple choice answers on right hand side, ...)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[croatian]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[cp1250]{inputenc}
\usepackage{xparse}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{arydshln}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault}

\ExplSyntaxOn
\newcounter{questions}
\stepcounter{questions}
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{2}

\newcommand{\zad}[1]{\textsc{Zadatak}\ $[#1]$}

\NewDocumentCommand{\myquestion}{m m m}{

\multicolumn{2}{|l|}{\thequestions.\ #1 \hfill $\qed$} \\ \hline

\end{tabular}

}

\seq_set_split:Nnn \splitted_seq{;}{#1}
\begin{enumerate}[label=\alph*)]

\end{enumerate}
}
\ExplSyntaxOff

\begin{document}

\myquestion{\zad{4} This is the first question}
{This is a \textbf{QUESTION}}
{choice A; choice B; choice C}

\vspace{-1pt}

\myquestion{\zad{4} This is the second question}
{$\sum_{i=0}^n X_k = \sum_{i=0}^n \frac{A_{ij}^k}{k!}$}
{choice A; choice B; choice C; choice D}

\end{document}


Second solution: This solution is a closer match to the document you linked to (multiple choice answers inside question box, pink box with tickboxes, ...)

\end{enumerate}

\end{document}


Of course both solutions can be combined depending on what you actually want to accomplish.

• Thanks! I wrote the code as close as my knoledge of latex provided. I didn't know how to remove spaces between tcolorboxes and make first question nicely visible. How to remove space between your \myquestion boxes so that looks as in document? – vejn Mar 25 '15 at 16:34
• @vejn Change \vspace. I edited my answer from \vspace{.5cm} to \vspace{-1pt}`. – Maarten Dhondt Mar 25 '15 at 16:45
• That's the document. Thank you. Where did you learn latex ? I have some tutorials but I was wondering where was your source. – vejn Mar 25 '15 at 17:13
• @vejn If in your opinion this is a correct answer, please consider accepting it. I learned LaTeX at University. – Maarten Dhondt Mar 25 '15 at 19:37
• Can you suggest some pdf tutorial to create new environments and commands which includes everything you make? – vejn Mar 25 '15 at 19:50
