You can rerun the command using different combinations in the endog() option. Put all the x's in there, and you test whether you need IV at all. Put one or two in, and you're questioning whether they must be instrumented, while letting the other(s) stay endogenous. In all cases you are contrasting with the model where they all are endogenous, which if the model is specified correctly is consistent.
