i am working with a simple question but i can't include underline before the \question.

Code

documentclass{myclass}

\newcommand{\line}{\begin{tabular}{p{2cm}}
\\[-.35em]
\hline
\end{tabular}
 }

 \begin{questions}
 \question What is the color of your shirt? \line

\end{questions}

Output:

  1. What is the color of your shirt? __

    but i'm trying to make something like this by:

Output:

__ 1.What is the color of your shirt?

How can I create this?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

  • The answer probably depends greatly on what the myclass class is--in particular, on the definition of the questions environment. – Andrew Uzzell Oct 24 '12 at 11:12
  • That's not a minimal working example (MWE). In addition to the unknown document class, you're missing the \begin{document} ... \end{document}. – Loop Space Oct 24 '12 at 11:22

Assuming the questions environment is that of the exam class: Redefine \questionlabel.

\documentclass{exam}

\renewcommand{\questionlabel}{\rule{1cm}{0.4pt}\thequestion.}

\begin{document}

\begin{questions}
\question\label{q:test} What is the color of your shirt? 
\end{questions}

See question~\ref{q:test}.

\end{document}

  • redefining the command indid make it. Thank You so much! – Kayla Oct 30 '12 at 0:00

like spaces, drawn rules (e.g. \hline) get ignored at the beginning of a line, so you need to put a "stopper" in front if you want it to be output. add \leavevmode before \hdline.
