Literal question
Did (name) sleep under a mosquito net last night?
Interviewer instructions
Ask the respondent if (name) slept under a mosquito net the previous night and circle the code corresponding to the answer given. If the respondent answers that the child did not sleep under a mosquito net last night or that he/she does not know, circle the appropriate code and skip to the next module. Otherwise, continue to the next question.

You will have asked about mosquito nets in the household to the respondent to the Household Questionnaire. Some similar questions are asked here, from ML11 to ML15. Note that these questions are asked of the net the child slept under the previous night, which might not necessarily be the mosquito net for which detailed information was collected in the ITN module of the Household Questionnaire.
