Default keep paragraphs together

I would like to be able to group a paragraph, a blank paragraph, and 4
paragraphs from printing on separate pages. This is for a multiple choice
exam in which the questions and answers are formatted with the outline
numbered scheme. I've tried both "keep lines together" and "keep with next"
in paragraph formatting, but this doesn't do the trick. Is this impossible to
achieve? Do I need to change some automatic setting someplace? PLEASE HELP.

Keep lines together keeps the lines of a particular paragraph on a single
page.
Keep with next keeps with the next paragraph.

Do not use blank paragraphs. Use spacing before/after. Learn about and apply
styles to make this (and using Word in general) much easier.

Word will do its best with these controls but if you tell it to keep fifteen
paragraphs with each other and they won't all fit on one page, you'll get
anomolous results.

As Charles said, use Space Before instead of an empty paragraph. Then format
your question and the first three answers as "Keep with next." Do not apply
this formatting to the last answer.
