The coincidence cross section and the interference structure function, [Formula Presented] were measured for the [Formula Presented] reaction at quasielastic kinematics and central momentum transfer of [Formula Presented] The measurement was at an opening angle of [Formula Presented] covering a range in missing energy of [Formula Presented] to 65 MeV. The [Formula Presented] structure function is found to be consistent with zero for [Formula Presented] confirming an earlier study which indicated that [Formula Presented] vanishes in this region. The integrated strengths of the [Formula Presented]- and [Formula Presented]-shell are compared with a distorted wave impulse approximation (DWIA) calculation. The [Formula Presented]-shell strength and shape are also compared with a Hartree Fock–random phase approximation (HF-RPA) calculation. The DWIA calculation does not succeed in giving a consistent description of both the cross section data and the extracted [Formula Presented] response for either shell. The HF-RPA calculation describes the data more consistently, which may be due to the inclusion of 2-body currents in this calculation.
