    In a math test, when a questions asks to fill in boxes in response to an equation, and the choices appear like "{□, □}," should this be in Nemeth switches, as it can be considered an enclosed list, due to the brackets? (Technically there are no Nemeth-only items here, but it seems like the answer will contain technical items--as enclosed lists themselves are considered technical.)  To either further clarify or cloud the issue, in the test, the boxes are to be omitted and replaced with omissions (either underscore (UEB) or double-dash/omission full cell (Nemeth). The question will just say, "Write your answer below" or something along those lines.


    My thanks in advance!



    H'lo, Jonathan:

    Since what you have is signs of omission surrounded by grouping indicators, and that would qualify as an "enclosed list" according to Nemeth Code definitions, I would advise you to put in Nemeth switch indicators these answer place-holders that are enclosed lists.

    Thank you for the question!
