I am trying to create a multiple choice exam where each item looks like:

Given this and that, which of the following is your choice?
a. blah       b. blip        c. clonk        d. er             e. None
of the preceding.

The following almost does it.

Given that this and that, which of
\begin{inparaenum}[\hspace{5mm}a.]
\item
blah
\item
blip
\item
clonk
\item
er
\item
None of the preceding.
\end{inparaenum}

(1) What I would like is a. b. c. d. e. to be boldfaced
When I tried

\begin{inparaenum}[\hspace{5mm}\textbf{a.}]

I got

a. blah       a. blip        a. clonk        a. er             a.
None of the preceding.

which I do not understand at all.

(2) I used \hspace{5mm} to separate the choices but I have no idea how
to get rid of the 5mm ahead of the first choice to get

Given this and that, which of the following is your choice?
a. blah       b. blip        c. clonk        d. er             e. None
of the preceding.

Given this and that, which of the following is your choice?
a. blah       b. blip        c. clonk        d. er
e. None of the preceding.

which is wasting space but, of course, what I am getting.

Hopeful regards
