# How to align multiple lines on same indent?

Desired effect is this:

But my document is this:

my code:

From paragraph 1: \\
\textbf{Q1}\quad The writer calls the advertising industry ‘universal’. What phrase is used later in the paragraph to echo this idea? \hfill [1] \\ \\
From paragraph 2: \\
\textbf{Q2}\quad (a) How do we realise early in the paragraph that the writer does not regard advertisements as simply ways of \textquoteleft{}relaying necessary information\textquoteright{}? \hfill [1] \\ \\
(b) The cafe owner \textquoteleft{}might be tempted\textquoteright{} to add to his advertisement. What does he hope to achieve by doing this? \hfill [1] \\ \\
(c) Explain \textbf{in your own words} why the writer feels that the world of advertising is such a dangerous place for ordinary people. \hfill [2] \\ \\
\textbf{Q3}\quad Why do you think that the writer finds it surprising that advertising methods are similar throughout the world? \hfill [1] \\ \\

Code example, please, that would doable with a normal enumerate –  daleif Mar 16 '11 at 12:42
my code is simple - i do not know how to achieve that effect –  yolo Mar 16 '11 at 12:46

With the help of the enumitem package you can easily achieve what you want:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\noindent
From paragraph 1:
\begin{enumerate}[label={\bfseries Q\arabic*},leftmargin=*]
\item The writer calls the advertising industry ‘universal’. What phrase is used later in the paragraph to echo this idea? \hfill [1]
\end{enumerate}
From paragraph 2:
\begin{enumerate}[label={\bfseries Q\arabic*},resume,leftmargin=*]
\item
\begin{enumerate}
\item How do we realise early in the paragraph that the writer does not regard advertisements as simply ways of \textquoteleft relaying necessary information\textquoteright ? \hfill [1]
\item The cafe owner \textquoteleft might be tempted\textquoteright to add to his advertisement. What does he hope to achieve by doing this? \hfill [1]
\item Explain \textbf{in your own words} why the writer feels that the world of advertising is such a dangerous place for ordinary people. \hfill [2]
\end{enumerate}
\item Why do you think that the writer finds it surprising that advertising methods are similar throughout the world? \hfill [1]
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

this indents the items uniformly but i cant use the enumeration. my code consists of questions and answers –  yolo Mar 16 '11 at 13:08
@umar why can't you use enumeration for questions? –  Seamus Mar 16 '11 at 13:09
my code is now given in question –  yolo Mar 16 '11 at 13:13
@umar: I added a new example code. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 16 '11 at 13:29
excellent! but one problem: can an enumeration item continue on the next page? a long item of several lines is cutting through the footer and the end of the page! –  yolo Mar 17 '11 at 13:11

Try this:

\begin{enumerate}
\item
\begin{enumerate}[(a)]
\item bla bla
\item bla bla
\item bla bla
\end{enumerate}
\item  bla bla
\end{enumerate}

-
that does not produce the desired result. Replace "bla bla" with "bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb‌​bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb‌​bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb" and you will see how it goes wrong. –  MHH Sep 2 '14 at 17:24
