  1. Examples of symptom severity after modification of Criterion A are presented. A new item ‘fear’ was incorporated between symptoms 4 and 5, and the ninth symptom ‘diminished ability’ (eighth symptom in the original Criterion A) was deleted. A compressed expression similar to that in Table 4 can be given: {2∙‹A›540231036(4,7), 2∙‹A›020004003(2,8), ‹A›540261036(10),…}. Note that the components of rows 2 and 8 are equivalent, as are those of rows 4 and 7. Similar to the case for Table 4, the number of rows does not exceed 7×9
