Default How to mark underlined words in a sentence as A, B, C, D (beneath the words)

I want to create some multiple choices question in Word 2010 similar to some questions in SAT (circle the answer A, B, C, D or E. These letters are beneath the underlined words in the sentence)



So please help me out how to mark underlined words in a sentence as A, B, C, D.

Many thanks!

I'll leave it to someone better informed to find a way of suggesting how to add letters below underlined words – if I've read your question correctly – because I'd probably mark the options more like this:
The capital of Nuevo Mundo is [A] Amphibia; [b] Bournville; [C] Courier New.
Apart from hyperlinks, I've given up on using underlines myself since reading the mantra "underlining is for typewriters", quite a few years ago now :-}

Default Alignment

If I understand the issue, it is one of alignment. This may be easiest with tables. A two-row table can contain the text line in the desired number of cells, and the letters in the second row can be centered under the indicated text. In fact, the underlining of the top tow words can even be cell borders.

If this is not wanted, I would suggest using custom tabs for the letters.

Best,
Ulodesk

[off thread] I'm so glad I'd never seen that sort of layout before … it really looks like something devised for typewriters and never changed since, which is why the almost heretical "use tables for layout" suggestion comes up. Given a free hand, I would have suggested something like the screenshot; perhaps with bold instead of italic to make the highlight clearer.

To see how, open the document & press Alt-F9 to toggle the field code display on/off. Basically, for each letter (in Courier New to ensure a consistent character width) there are two ADVANCE fields - on to offset the text downwards and the other to offset it up & to the left (left to account for the inserted character's width). Simply copy & paste those, as a set, to wherever you want them.

Paul, that's intriguing. I've copied it to my reference files. Thank you!

Good point – no <g> I'd never come across the the {advance} field, and take my hat off to your ingenious solution! (another forum, another product … I congratulated someone on her "devious" solution for leading zeros in autonumbering, and she immediately understood this was a whole-hearted compliment) I still regard the layout you've so deftly emulated as a) obsolete; b) remarkably hard to comprehend, though …

I'm not advocating the OP's desired format either; just showing how it can be achieved.
