Hi James,

To be sure to have matching roman numbers in the list and in the answer 
options, I suggest to just directly type them. In this case, you are 
independent from any not supported display or printing options, e.g.

<li>(I) the current</li>
<li>(II) the potential difference across it</li>
<li>(III) the cross-sectional area</li>
<li>(IV) the length of the resistor</li>
