The task for the tested system is to determine which synonym or definition of five alternatives is correct for each test item.

Dataset function(s) Few-shot training ("prompting"), testing

Only one alternative is marked as correct. There may be other possible meanings of the focus word, which are not possible alternatives.

Each line contains an id (("h"+year+"a"|"b"|"c"("a"|"b")+item number ("00" is a practice item)), a target item, an array of candidate answers and a label index which indicates the correct answer (numbering starts at 0). Metadata contain a comment which showswhether the item is marked "excluded" in the answer key, because they were leaked on the internet immediately before the 2012 spring test (four items in total)
