I've recently seen How to "bubble in"/color fill an item counter ((A),(B),(C),...) in an enumerated list and I just wondered: what if I'd like to enumerate my list with the arabic numbers, i.e. 1,2,3 etc? What would be the code?

\begin{enumerate} \item whatever \end{enumerate} ? (With enumitem if something more fancy is needed.) – mbork Feb 27 '13 at 20:03
ok but I think that this kind of code was used there. – giannis Feb 27 '13 at 20:15

Just replace all occurences of \Alph by \arabic in How to "bubble in"/color fill an item counter ((A),(B),(C),...) in an enumerated list:


        \node[circle,fill=blue!20,draw,inner sep=2pt,opacity=0.5,text opacity=1] (char) {#1};}}



\item Answer A
\item Answer B
\item[\circled{\cnt}] Answer C
\item Answer D
\item Answer E
