Giving constraint in prompt using GPT3.5-16k

Hi, has anyone experienced using constraints with GPT-3.5? I have noticed that every time constraints are set, the output sometimes follows the instructions, but other times it does not.

For example, if the instruction is to “strictly generate 5 sentences/words/bullets/paragraphs,” the output sometimes adheres to the instruction, but other times it does not. It might produce more or fewer sentences, adding or subtracting one sentence, word, or bullet point.

You can fix this issue 100% guaranteed.

Simply include 3-4 worked examples in the prompt. Then continue with the instruction - and your outputs will be exactly the same format as the examples you included in your prompt.
