```Ozgur,

You can do either - it's up to you.  In the first case, your null is that both x4 and x5 are exogenous.  In the second case, you are doing two separate tests; in one, the null is that x4 is exogenous; in the other, the null is that x5 is exogenous.

It's analogous to testing the coeffs on, say, x1 and x2.  You can test that they are jointly 0, or you can do separate tests of whether one or the other is 0.

HTH,
Mark
