[OS X TeX] Filling the box in a table

In the following:

    Please indicate your choices with an \textsf{{\Large X}} as follows:
    \newdimen\digitwidth \settowidth\digitwidth{0}

        \catcode`\?=\active \def?{}
        \begin{tabular}{@{} |c| @{}}
        \textsf{{\Large X}}

the code does not quite do what I would like which is for the X to 
"fill" the box (in a grid for entering choices for multiple choice 
questions) as \Large increases the size of the box.

I adapted thiS—which I don't understand—from something given to me on 
this list once upon a time for something else but tinkering did not 
result in the desired effect.

Hopeful regards
