DISCUSS: Making cards with lists in History

Hello world! Can anyone give me tips to make card in History.

For example, during The Reign Of Terror, Robespierre brought these policies:-

  • Meat and bread were rationed.
  • The use of more expensive white flour was forbidden.
  • All French men and women were called Citoyen and Citoyenne.
  • Churches were shut down and their buildings converted into barracks or offices

How should I use cloze or should I divide it into many cards? What should I do?
Please tell me
:slightly_smiling_face: :pray:

The followin example on the site I linked is similar to your case:

Q: What are the characteristics of the Dead Sea?
A: Salt lake located on the border between Israel and Jordan. Its shoreline is the lowest point on the Earth’s surface, averaging 396 m below sea level. It is 74 km long. It is seven times as salty (30% by volume) as the ocean. Its density keeps swimmers afloat. Only simple organisms can live in its saline waters
