Thank you for your question and your patience.
Alright then; let's get down to business. Here are responses to your questions, based on my understanding of the Provisional Guidelines:
p. 684, question 4: Since enclosed lists are specifically provided for in the Nemeth Code, I would say that grid coordinates presented as little enclosed lists should be transcribed in Nemeth mode.
p. 684, question 7: In order to ensure that you use the same dots for all percent signs throughout the document, I would switch into Nemeth mode for this list of percentages (including the answer choice identifiers A-D).
p. 685, question 35: Since this table's entries consist only of simple numbers, I believe the whole table can be transcribed in UEB.
p. 686, question 3: The answer choices that consist only of numbers could be transcribed in UEB.
p. 686, questions 9 & 11: Superscripts should be presented using Nemeth symbols, not the UEB super- or subscript indicators.
You might say that "math notation" refers to material that is presented differently in Nemeth Code than it is in UEB. And such material should be transcribed in Nemeth mode whether it appears alone or in the midst of an equation or expression.
