I find that sometimes I need to put some texts as the following:

A.x+y B.2x C.y+z

Here is my question:

How can one put more spaces between this "choices" when needed?

You can also use html entity for space: &nsbp;

So writing A. Choice1   B. Choice2   C. Choice3

will make it look like

A. Choice1   B. Choice2   C. Choice3

When you are editing, look at the top right corner, there you will see a yellow question mark, which has help for formatting.

One way of doing this would be to put each choice on a new line. The website requires at least two spaces at the end of a line, in addition to the "return" button, in order to make a new line.

For example, putting two spaces at the end of each line of this input

  A. $x+y$  
  B. $2x$  
  C. $y+z$  

generates

A. $x+y$
B. $2x$
C. $y+z$

Use LaTeX:

$$ A.\, x+y \qquad B.\, 2x \qquad C.\, y+z $$

  • $\begingroup$ Right-clicking the image doesn't show me the option "Show Source" And if I use the code mentioned by @ShreevatsaR the LaTeX code does not get formatted in tex.stackexchange.com. How do I tell Stack Exchange to interpret it as LaTeX? Do I need to surround it by $$ or something like this? $\endgroup$
