I use the great exam package to write my exams as a teacher. It lets me typeset solutions too, but for multipart questions, I want the solution to each part printed right after that part. By default, exam writes the solution to the parts of a multipart question together.

Here's a minimum example:

\documentclass{exam}

\begin{document}
\printanswers

\begin{questions}
\question Below is the data for an ``E-core.''
\begin{parts}
    \part Describe what an E is.
    \part Describe what a core is.
\end{parts}

\begin{solution}
\begin{parts}
    \part E usually comes before F.
    \part Core is usually inside a crust.
\end{parts}
\end{solution}

\end{questions}

\end{document}

    Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) showing what you have done thus far - this way it would easy to work from an existing platform.

  • @Werner, thanks for the hint. Off to edit. Thanks to superb StackExchange, my question is already answered! Nov 28, 2011 at 4:01
  • Instead of posting a “Thank you”, you should thank @Gonzalo by upvoting his answer (with the upward pointing arrow to the left of it; you need 15 reputation points before you can upvote) and accepting it (by clicking on the checkmark).

Here's an example using the solution environment to print the solutions right after their corresponding part:

\documentclass[answers]{exam}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{questions}
\question
What if there were no air?
\begin{parts}
  \part[5]
  Describe the effect on the balloon industry.
  \begin{solution}
    \lipsum[1]
  \end{solution}
  \part[5]
  Describe the effect on the aircraft industry.
  \begin{solution}
    \lipsum[2]
  \end{solution}
\end{parts}
\end{questions}

\end{document}
