TeX - LaTeX Asked by user203697 on November 27, 2020

I am trying to use a nested enumerate block to have an alphabetical list and it throws an error (! LaTeX Error: Something’s wrong–perhaps a missing item) when the nested block isn’t in a quote block. I want to remove the quote block so the lists aren’t indented as far. Any help is much appreciated, thank you.
