expressing alternate flows

How do you express the alternate flows? I'd imagine this would be in the sequence diagrams but wouldn't this make the diagrams complicated and thus unreadable?

In practice, I'd put alternate flows in separate sequence diagrams but the requirements say to submit only one sequence diagram per use case.

Thanks in advance!

I saw on this forums, that there are many people which created several sequence diagrams for an use case and scored maximum for sequence diagrams.

I agree. Here's the link:
