How to Add a Subscript/Superscript to Questions


ProProfs Quiz Maker offers a subscript/superscript option to format text in a smaller size, either below or above the normal text line. 


This is useful in quizzes containing questions and answers with mathematical or scientific formulas, where certain text or numbers must be presented as subscripts or superscripts for clarity and accuracy.


NOTE: This option is unavailable only when the math editor in the toolbar is enabled from the advanced settings.


Here’s how your quiz questions and answers appear with superscripts/superscripts:
