Initialization:

$mc = new_checkbox_multiple_choice();$mc -> qa (
"Select all expressions that are equivalent to
$$e^{x^2 + 1/x}$$.  There may be more than
"$$e^{x^2} e^{1/x}$$ $BR", "$$e^{x^2} e^{x^{-1}}$$$BR",
);

$mc -> extra( "$$\displaystyle \frac{ e^{x^2} }{ e^x }$$$BR",
);

$mc -> makeLast("None of the above");  Setup: Use the question and answer method qa( ) to store the question string and correct answer strings in $mc. For example, $mc->qa("question","correct answer 1","correct answer 2");. Note that unlike match lists and select lists, you cannot call the qa( ) method again. If you include math symbols you should switch to LaTeX mode , and use \displaystyle with extra spacing $BR after each entry, if necessary. For example,

$mc->qa( "Question text here.", "$$x^2$$$BR",
"$$\displaystyle \frac{x^2}{4-x}$$ $BR" );  Incorrect answers are specified as a list of string arguments to the extra( ) method. The arguments of the makeLast( ) method will appear at the end of the list and will not be shuffled, unlike the arguments of extra( ), which are shuffled. The arguments to makeLast( ) can either be a new extra answers or only the correct answer. For example, if the only correct answer is "None of the above", use $mc->qa("question","None of the above");
$mc->extra("very wrong","distractor","red herring");$mc->makeLast("None of the above");


To make answers appear in a certain order (e.g., Yes followed by No and Maybe), use $mc->qa("question","Yes");$mc->makeLast("Yes","No","Maybe"); and do not use extra( ) at all.

Main Text: Print the question and answers. Print the question text using $mc->print_q() and the list of all answers using $mc->print_a().
