# Fill in the blanks in ConTeXt

While preparing an exam, I needed to create empty lines for students to write their answers.

How to typeset that using ConTeXt? I could think of a plain TeX solution: create an appropriate `\leaders` to create a ruled line; insert appropriate `\vskip` between the lines. Before trying to code it, I decoded to quickly grep ConTeXt base for `\leaders` to see if a similar macro was already implemented. Sure enough, ConTeXt had a macro for that: `\thinrules` (and `\setupthinrules` to change space between the lines, color and thickness of the rule, etc.) Thus, to get the result shown above, I needed:

``Fill in the blanks \thinrules[n=2] ``
