I have four examples, numbered 1,2,3,4, with xml:id="exi" for i=1,2,3,4. In an exercise, I would like to say "prove the statements made in Examples 1-4". But if I use   
"prove the statements made in <xref ref="ex1,ex2,ex3,ex4"/>" the output is
"prove the statements made in Example 1, Example 2, Example 3, Example 4."
I tried renaming "example" to an empty name, so that I could do 
"prove the statements made in Examples <xref ref="ex1,ex2,ex3,ex4"/>"
but then the output will be [example] 1, [example] 2, [example] 3, [example] 4.
Is there a way to do this?

Second bullet in the subsection of "4.5 Cross-References and Citations"

Subsection 4.5.3: Variations
https://pretextbook.org/doc/guide/html/topic-cross-referencing.html#subsection-27

Study comments following.

Your guesses are what is explained in the third bullet.

Thank you! that is exactly what I needed. And I thought I had searched the guide, but obviously I need to get better at that.

Good! And the Guide needs to get better, too. ;-)
