# Split odd numbered list into even columns

I am trying to split 5 items list into two columns, but the second column only write on the 1st and the 3rd line.. Do't know how to solve this, and how can i change the space between the two columns?.

\begin{enumerate}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item Delta (0.5 - 4 Hz)
\item Theta (4 - 8 Hz)
\item Alpha (8 - 13 Hz)
\item Beta (13 - 22 Hz)
\item Gamma (30 - 40 Hz)
\end{multicols}
\end{enumerate}

• It would look better with a horizontal enumeration, as obtained with the tasks or shortlst packages. – Bernard Nov 20 '15 at 17:09

multicols by default tries to balance the columns; that is, it will try to put the top rows and bottom rows in both columns on the same level. If you don't want that, you can add \raggedcolumns to your file.
