# How can I add Explanatory text with Table in Latex

I want to create a table which contains an explanatory text like the following picture:

here is the code I have written:

\begin{table}[]
\caption{N-best examples from the MSCOCO test set. Bold lines indicate a
novel sentence not present in the training set.}
\label{table3}
\centering
\resizebox{.90\columnwidth}{!}{%
\begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}}
\toprule
A man throwing a frisbee in a park                         \\
\textbf{A man throwing a frisbee in a park}                \\
\textbf{A man standing in the grass with a frisbee.}       \\
A close up of a sandwich on a plate.                       \\
A close up of a plate of food with french fries.           \\
A white plate topped with a cut in half sandwich.          \\
A display case filled with lots of donuts.                 \\
\textbf{A display case filled with lots of cakes.}         \\
\textbf{A bakery display case filled with lots of donuts.} \\ \bottomrule
\end{tabular}%
}
\end{table}


How can I get the bottom lines in this table? I have tried \threeparttable, but it seems to generate error. Can anyone show how it can be done?

• Why not just add it as a table line after \bottomrule? – Paul Stanley Oct 28 '19 at 13:16
• Welcome to TeX.SE! Please be so kind and extend your code fragment to complete but small document with your table. Try to show us how you try to use threeparttable. Help us to help you! – Zarko Oct 28 '19 at 13:28

In lack of any information about your document, I was able to write the following code for your table:

Edit: From my test bed I add relevant package and form an MWE that anyone can test proposed solution.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[labelfont=up,labelsep=newline, skip=1ex]{caption}
\begin{table}[ht]
\centering
\begin{threeparttable}
\caption{N-best examples from the MSCOCO test set.}
\label{table3}
\begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}}
\toprule
A man throwing a frisbee in a park                         \\
\textbf{A man throwing a frisbee in a park}                \\
\textbf{A man standing in the grass with a frisbee.}       \\
A close up of a sandwich on a plate.                       \\
A close up of a plate of food with french fries.           \\
A white plate topped with a cut in half sandwich.          \\
A display case filled with lots of donuts.                 \\
\textbf{A display case filled with lots of cakes.}         \\
\textbf{A bakery display case filled with lots of donuts.} \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\begin{tablenotes}[para, flushleft]\itshape
Bold Lines Indicate a Novel Setence not Present in the Training set
\end{tablenotes}
\end{threeparttable}
\end{table}
\end{document}


which using my testbed gives:

Is this what you looking for?

• Yes, That is what I am looking for. – Faiyaz Khan Shayor Oct 28 '19 at 14:14
• Well, good to know! When you will extend your code fragment to complete small document that I will be able to complete my answer? – Zarko Oct 28 '19 at 14:31
