To be able to work with several answers at once, you need to use the MultiAnswer object available in the parserMultiAnswer.pl macro file. You get access to the student answers through the custom checker function that you provide. See the MultiAnswer documentation for details.

Here is an example of how to do this:

loadMacros(
"PGstandard.pl",
"MathObjects.pl",
"PGML.pl",
$A = Compute("{1,2,3,4}");$B = Compute("{3,4,5,6,7,8}");
$ma = MultiAnswer($A,$B)->with( singleResult => true, format => "A = %s and B = %s", tex_format => "A = %s\hbox{ and }B = %s", checker => sub { my ($correct, $student,$m, $ans) = @_; my ($A, $B) = @$student;
if (!$ans->{isPreview}) { Value->Error("A doesn't have 4 elements") if$A->length != 4;
Value->Error("B doesn't have 6 elements") if $B->length != 6; Value->Error("The union doesn't have 8 elements") if ($A + $B)->length != 8; } return$A->length == 4 && $B->length == 6 && ($A + $B)->length == 8; } ); BEGIN_PGML Give an example of sets [A] and [B] of numbers with [|A| = 4], [|B| = 6], and [|A \cup B| = 8]. >> [A] = [______________]{$ma} and [B] = [_______________]{\$ma}  <<
